Any idea why it had two units this day?

One of my favorite SP passenger trains. I've enjoyed all the images that you've posted of this one.

That's the Salinas River. The Pajaro River is 26 miles up on the Coast Line from that location.

Sorry Sam, my mind was in nuetral.

It had two units as it was a longer than normal train with the end near. It had the two normal lightweight cars as well as four of SP's "subs" in the consist.
