    Dogs Dig Trains Too

    My Railfaning companion watches intently as the Eastbound Southwest Chief arrives at the station in Fullerton. Once the train is loaded and it starts to pull away, that is the signal to my K9 companion to bark loudly and then brake into a run in a futile attempt to run down the train. So far she...
