It was the earliest that Conway Scenic had cleared the line over Crawford Notch in a number of years. I couldn’t tell you how many.
The rock cutting a the Gateway on the final approach to the summit still had a good amount of snow.
However, considering that trains have been snow-bound at this rugged location, the mounds of soft and partially melted snow, represented only a nominal impediment to our westward progress.
I made still and video images of Conway Scenic GP7 573 breaking through the snow filled cut.
This photo was exposed digitally using my Nikon Z6 with 24-70mm lens.
