I LOVE this shot! The chick with nice legs doesn't hurt the image any. But also the people show the scale of the train. Is it really this massive?

The last time I chased the circus train leaving Anaheim, CA.

How do you know when a specific train, like the circus, is scheduled to run?

Trains Magazine has published when they are leaving each city, but not exact hour. That is unknown, but generally one day after the last show. They are including which systems tracks are being used. General freight is not public info as it varies and for security. Radio Scanners (about 161 kHz) are a helpful tool, or inquire of people who live next to the track. You can "like" Trains Magazine on Facebook.

Back then, there were a couple railroad related forums in Southern California that had people who tracked the train, and I was able to get my information from them. Of course I also have friends who tracked its movements every year, and I joined them in the chase. The forums that I used are no longer active. Another source for getting information on movements is trainorders.com. You don't have to be a member to read stuff posted on the first page.

Below is a photo of my friend Chris set up to capture the movement of the circus train as it makes it run down Santa Ana St. in Anaheim. The circus was moving from their show site in Los Angeles to the site in Anaheim.

Yes this train is massive. Wish there were more running. Here's a frontal view.

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.
