Very cool stuff. That location at Verdi is one of my favorite places to get out of the casinos for a bit and watch some trains when I am up in Reno.
thank you both! i don't get to railfan much but when i do, i try to make the best of it!
Shekky, I live on I-80 just west of Auburn. My wife and I spend a lot of time photographing on Donnor. There's so much there that you cannot see everything. Just a few months ago we got several nice pics near Verdi. Good spots there right off the freeway near the border. See you there someday.
