The Thundering Freight of Box Elder

Pulling out of Box Elder, South Dakota, the road paralleled the Rapid City, Pierre & Eastern tracks. It just so happens the morning freight was thundering past!

So, I grabbed my trusty camera and rolled down the window. The morning air was crisp as I leaned out precariously.

The shutter snapped. The whistle blew.

It was another day of chasing freights in Box Elder.
