Thanks John for the fine coverage. Keep posting those blue sky 'California Dreamin' shots. Helps a homie get over the NW blahs; ah if I could only afford to buy back down there!

Looks like old #42 has had a few encounters with ?????. Just like a Timex though, she "takes a licking and keeps on ticking".

DEFINITELY but almost missed it because you posted this on the Western RR Discussion. You should make a post on the Amtrak Discussion pointing to this thread so the Amtrak readers (like me) will find your great photos.

THANKS again for the great photos!

I just love that wig wag. I've been trying to get a good shot of that thing for years without much luck.
Thanks for the post
