Bob, was this a football special? It seems like an odd time of day for such a big train to be running...

Big Game train

The train was heading for the Big Game at Stanford in 1976.

I liked it better in your photo Bob, I remember the industry tracks and the concrete mixing place where BART is now.

Did a lot of shooting there in 1979-81.My wife used to take the train from SF after attending night classes and the Milbrae Local would be tied up across from the depot for beans. Life moves on, but rarely for the better.

Wrong year

For the record: the Big Game is at Stanford in odd-numbered years. I think the 3197 led in 1975; dunno about 1977 or later.
