An eastbound train passes by the departure yard at the Union Pacific's West Colton yard facility. In the background, traffic on I-10 is passing by. (The camera is facing west.)

Going back a few years. The SP and Rio Grande units are now repainted in UP colors.

Westbound through Cadiz at sunset. In the distance the power for the Cadiz turn job waits in the siding for interchange for the Arizona and California.

We continue to get pounded by storms in Northern California. Quite a change from the last 4 years of drought. Here a red-tailed hawk faces off with a BNSF stack train. You can look back in this thread at older shots to see how brown this area had been

Here are a few from the railroad museum in Sacramento. I've got to go back-I could easily spend days in there. I grabbed these with a new Sigma 17-50 2.8 on a 50D.

My first glimpse of a bullet train in person.

A few random steam engine shots.

In case you're hungry, they might serve chow. Keep in mind, prices haven't been adjusted for 2017 yet.

There was so much more going on in the museum but we ran out of time. They had snow plows, model trains, a gigantic cab forward engine (I always enjoy that one) and model trains. There is even an engine with the sides removed so that you can see all of the parts of a diesel electric-it's pretty interesting.
