An EMD SD70M is up front of a Union Pacific mixed freight as it pulls away from the setting sun on the Geneva subdivision. A cut of cars with John Deere tractors is shown.

I was hoping for less clouds for maximum sun glint off the rails and cars. But instead the clouds had a nice reddish glow going on. Not so much of an orange color as on many evenings. So I think it looks good despite the diminished sunlight glint.

I try to get out to shoot these types of videos several times a year. Sometimes there are no trains or the sunset doesn't cooperate. (Was out a week ago for a dud evening shoot.) And the Photographer's Ephemeris photoephemeris.com is a big help with the sun angles.

Here's a nice glinty one from the past: youtube.com/watch?v=KjNukYdlHs8

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
