UP 844 at Pinole

UP 844 leads the Western Heritage special around the big curve at Pinole as it runs along the San Francisco Bay. It's nearly to its western-most destination of Oakland.
Quite nice! I like the contrast of the old steamer with the new genset locomotive tucked in behind.
I was thinking about going up to Pinole that day, but things didn't work out. Glad you got a great photo of the 844! ;)
