On the cover: A railfan stands trackside composing the “perfect shot” of a rare beast. Tenino Western’s GP35R 2501 is the only such locomotive on the roster and is seen here leading the LYCP-16 (Lake Yard to Cooper Point transfer) over Percival Creek. Tyler Whitcomb’s photo can be found among the Ken Wodek Memorial Photo Contest entries, starting on page 16.
