Capitol Corridor Reflections
Author: jimB

Wonderful late Fall Sunday in the Bay Area, 65 degrees and calm with some nice clouds, allowing for smooth water at the Southern end of the SF Bay at Alviso. I was able to combine my daily walk with Capitol #732, and an F59PHi instead of the hoped for Charger. A well placed jet contrail was a nice addition.

The 49ers were just had just kicked off about 2 miles South. #732 had stopped at Great America, adjacent to the stadium. Normally you can hear the crowd from Alviso, but I don't think the 49ers are drawing too much of a crowd this year!

Perfection, Jim! I've found late fall to be the best time for Alviso reflections with the southern sun and the cooler, still air.

Very nice, what's the vinyl wrap on the last but one car?

Nice

An unusual consist too.  4 car Capitols usually have one of Oakland's two Surfliner type cafes (6300's), but this one seems to have a CA Cafe (8800's) in the Car 2 spot behind the loco.  This too, is unusual- in all my years working the CC as an LSA I think my car was in a position other than Car 3 two or three times.

It's a Spare the Air message. This isn't a very sharp image but sort of shows it.

Thanks for the kind responses.

Thanks for posting the great shot, especially while taking a nice walk out in Alviso. Rare to have crisp visibility with calm waters out there.

I remember more than a decade ago where local transit agencies were promoting free rides during Spare the Air days, and I took advantage of them.
