Train of empties waiting for the conductor to throw the switch that the full train to the left just cleared.

Ok, not the bay area, but close enough...Eastbound Zephry coming out of the rain at Verdi Nevada crossing the Truckee river. For those familiar, the building at the upper left is the Boomtown casino/hotel.

Shameless shot of my car with a passing BNSF. I like the 999 number!

UP C&NW hertitage unit at the lead thorugh Hercules California, while people are enjoying the bay. I can't believe how clear it was on a summer day. This shot was taken from about 3 miles away.

Thanks guys, glad y'all enjoyed them. I am always trying to find new ways to shoot trains so they don't all just look the same.

very nice, cool scheme on 1995. Surprised the long shots from the heat we had aren't all wavy, very nice.
