The Western Railroad Museum (near Rio Vista California) is running their spring wildflower viewing specials right now. The museum uses the old Sacramento Northern RR mainline and in this neck of the woods, not much has changed since they were running for revenue 60+ years ago. The museum has re electrified about 20 miles of mainline for their weekend excursions on vintage electric railroad equipment.

It stops at a picnic area, before reversing direction and heading back to the museum.

This is a nice series. #3 was cropped a little. You might do the same thing to #1 so it's not so centered.
