What was that I saw in Riverside, CA yesterday?
Author: RailRat

Yesterday about 5pm, as I entered the west bound 91 freeway, from Central Ave, I barely caught a glimpse of an east bound (OR northbound?) BNSF with 1 lead unit, a buffer car?, and what looked like a baggage car on the end, That's it!
Maybe a geometry train?

The measuring car is automated. Normally doesn't have anybody aboard.
