Amtrak Southwest Chief climbing Raton Pass

Here is a shot out the window of the westbound Southwest Chief train as it climbs Raton Pass (Colorado-New Mexico border) on Sunday, Dec 20, 1998 bound for Los Angeles. We had the ride of our lives and went through the Raton Tunnel at an elevation of 7,588 feet above sea level. You can see the head end with it's four Genesis locomotives pulling the 23 car Amtrak train out of the snowy Great Plains.
