It was a gorgeous day. The sky was deep and blue, winds light, warm and everything green.

Thanks! I have seen two out of the norm trains before, but never three.

Finally after a cold damp spring! There were two other Railfans down at Amtrak, but neither of them got out of their cars.

Super shots Brad! Where were you when taking those Summit shots?
Thanks Ed! I was on the Vinton Street bridge. I park on the street to the west of the bridge, next to the salvage place. Someone has cut perfect lens sized holes in a lot of the fences in that area. There are probably 6 or so holes in the vinton street bridge alone.
