No wildfires at your usual spots?
Not in the Bay Area, but the smoke here is so bad you can hardly see more than a half mile. The nearest fire to here is in Mendocino/Lake counties about 80 miles to the north. There have been a few grass fires nearby that have been quickly dealt with luckily. Here is a shot from right by the UP tracks in Hercules showing the smoke (last week, about 70 miles to the north).

It's a digital sign, just like at the front of a bus. It usually has the destination or train number scrolling on it. It doesn't photograph well due to high shutter speeds and refresh rate of the LED's (and I think you mean Charger. Even at 375 horses, a Dodge would have a hell of a time trying to pull a train :p).

Thanks. I keep mixing up those Dodge muscle car names as applied to these locos. I wish Siemens had used something more original.
