Key System 182 is a three-truck, two-car articulated all steel unit designed and built to run over the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. These cars ran in trains across the Bay Bridge and in East Bay streets from 1939 to 1958. It now runs on the Western Railway Museum's right of way on the old Sacramento Northern Tracks near Rio Vista California

I visited some friends in norther Arizona this past weekend and was able to get trackside. We had some really beautiful skies.

Valentine, AZ: A BNSF train heads down grade out of Crozier canyon.

The problem with these beautiful clouds in the sky is that they often tend to ruin the light for the shot. It seemed that most of the time over the weekend that the clouds were not very cooperative by casting their shadows on the scene as seen in the shot below. I still like the shot even though the train is not in ideal light.

Not a "best" , except that so far it's my only pano shot LOL

Posting mostly for the interest factor. It's not very good photos and my first attempt at stitching a pano. Along Interstate 10 in southern Arizona, there are two of these "trains" that I can see, made up entirely of engines. I'm guessing that they are in storage or something ? Left end is just behind the slight hill at the edge of frame, not sure how much further it extends to the right, it's out of view behind the hills. Second one near-by is just as long or maybe longer. Slightly larger view at flickr.

Thanks. I think #2 is one of those shots that you either love it or hate it. I was playing around with the shot in Silver Efex pro2. I am mixed on the result. Thanks again for your comments.
