Union Pacific smell the paint C44ACM in California - Quick Chase
Author: erielackawanna

I had a meeting in Palm Desert, which is 135 mile drive from home. I figured I would take the edge off the drive by brining my camera and doing some railfanning in Whitewater, but I wound up being late on my way there and couldn't do anything about the three trains I saw. On the way back, I saw nothing from Palm Desert through Whitewater... but did come across the UP MFWWC-20 heading west at the Cabazon border. The began a short chase through Cabazon and Banning (with two eastbounds blowing by me silently and without any chance for any shots). But the Forth Worth had a freshly painted C44ACM on the lead and was heading into the sun, so it was my real target anyway. 

First image is in Cabazon. All of the rest are in Banning. 2/23/24

Killed it Charles! I saw the 9798 yesterday in Ontario backlit and in high clouds, needless to say nothing like your results.
