No wonder it broke. Imagine a train trying to cut across an old field!

There is an old spur there that is not maintained, they took it out in the last year. I was driving by and noticed it and immediately pulled off the road to shoot it. I had never seen a train there before, that may be why

Love the sepia treatment on this one, not overly done IMHO. You might want to clone or crop out the modern bus in the background though. Kinda ruins the effect.

Amtrak NPCU (Non-Powered Cab Unit) number 90278 leads the way into the Irvine, CA station on a northbound Surfliner. NPCU 90278 was made from a former F40PH locomotive. The engine has been removed and the roll-up door on the side is so the former engine space can be used for cargo.

Southbound Amtrak Surfliner Engine 2119, an SC-44 arrives at Irvine, CA to pick up passengers. A northbound Surfliner in the background is picking up passengers.

The pride of the Heritage fleet 3801 recreating the record setting Newcastle Flyer leaving Gosford heading on the Short North Down Main.
The record set in 1964 still stands at 2 Hours 1 Minute and 57 Seconds for the 167 kilometres from Central to Newcastle Terminal.
