Wyoming Coal Trains

These are pictures of coal trains near Guernsey, Wyoming taken inside Guernsey State Park.

The coal trains run through this area day and night around the clock carrying coal all over the country.

In the picture above, you can see my shadow on the bridge in the middle of the train.

Above is the front of the train looking in the other direction.

There are two sets of tracks here, I think to allow the trains to pass by each other.

I’d like to see the mine where all this coal comes from.  I couldn’t count all these cars even in a photograph.
