Train time Tuesday (4/18/17) saw me at the marsh photographing birds with the 5DIII + 500L + 1.4x TC as the Chicago bound Empire Builder (Amtrak #8) rolled into town. I tried to get the Marina Beach Park sign in the photo along with the train.
The Empire Builder has gone from four Superliner cars to six in the past week. The two trailing ones on Wednesday's Chicago bound builder (Amtrak #8) sported advertising(?). I hope this is not a view of the future where the Superliner cars are turned into giant rolling billboards to make up for revenue deficits.
