Awesome pics!
In a more joking sense, I'm not sure what looks more wrong, putting the car after the locomotive as I've seen before, or putting it here.

It's not about looks, it's about operation...

Just got off that trip at Fullerton less than two hours ago. The trip was wonderful, and well staffed with knowledgable personnel. A very well run trip, but with better advertising would have had more passengers. Can't wait for the next one in August. Everythone -- be there. ! ! !

I have a question about Pacific Railroad Society. According to their website, they claim to have a bunch of cars, but they seem to be donated or sold to museums. They have another bunch of cars in a siding in East Los Angeles. Are they being restored, or just saved from the scrap yard? Their clubhouse is up near Glendora.

So what is with this group?

I see nothing wrong with the look of the placement of the car on the excursion, however a car on the rear of a train after the pushing locomotive is a diffent story.
