Any day now the green grass of the canyon will turn "golden" for the rest of the year, so I have been stopping on the way home from work to grab some shots of trains in this very scenic location northwest of San Francisco.

The grass won't be this green again until around November

The UPS train does not waste time

Thanks all, #2 is probably my favorite of this series as well. Not bad considering I was chasing the sound of the horns and got it from out the window of my GTI at rurual grade crossing just as it went by!
