Hey Mike, it looks like cloudy days/trains meeting is a good thing on railpics:

Jim, that's some pretty good light on the snow and power, strong color, and you still get some pattern in the cloulds, not just solid white. Good one.

Jim, my meet shot is a personal favorite. Everything just came together... but as in your shot, the human element is what really makes it.

Good thing for the conductor it wasn't too cold out; he was doing a roll by on an 11,000 foot train slowing to a stop.
