716 doing passenger work at Merced while in the middle of a pretty heavy storm, the same storm that casued tornadoes in Sacramento. When we were leaving Antioch we could see those forming across the water
As the local returns from the cement plant, it's being passed by an eastbound.
Power: CN 2626 & 2531 (Dash 9-44CW's) and an unidentified CN SD75I or SD70I.
The power for the local: CN 271 (GP9 slug) CN 7267 (GP9RM)
One word can describe this spring: RAIN! Here we find a southbounder on the CN stopped at the same time that the WSOR's HMR is heading back north - all in a light rain...at least it's greened things up around here.
Rain storm had just cleared out. I rolled down the window, to take a picture of the rainbow. Heard the train horn, fiddled quickly with the camera, and got this great shot. Engine smoke clouded the railbow. Minutes afterward, the rainbow had disappeared.
