A little AC/DC action outside of Stockton Intermodal. The far train is an Army movement and powered by a ES44C4 while the closer train is a mixed freight with an older 9-44CW at the lead. I am no expert at identifying locomotives, I just read them :rolleyes:

That's part of a Stryker brigade heading home from training at Fort Irwin. At least half of the vehicles are Strykers, and the rest appear to be Oshkosh HEMMTs and possibly a few MRAPs or the Army's version of M-ATVs as well. There's probably some more conventional five-ton trucks or deuce-and-a-halfs, too.
 
I planned a trip up to the Feather River area on Columbus Day. Unfortunately this was the same day all the horrible fires broke out all over Northern California. This freight was tied down at Pulga due to a wildfire outside of Oroville that shut down all traffic on the division.
