Miningcamper1 is spot on.

If you take your shot, crop really tight by the mountain, you'll see the mountain "loom" with room for the train to be included in the shot. Not sure what Chris did to get the shot - could be a number of variables - 300 mm with a 1.4 or even a 2X extender, or a very high megapixel camera with the image cropped considerably, or a not so high resolution camera with a cropped image that won't reproduce well past an 8"X12".

Be wary of heat distortion, however - I'm always amazed when people "beat" this issue, as I only seem able to at sunset and sunrise, regardless of the time of the year.
