    It's probably named "Beelzebub."

    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.

    A wide angle view of a northbound (tt/east) empty grainer passing the marsh Monday (4/17/17) afternoon. Taken by my son from the walkway out to the #1 viewing platform with the 7D + 24-105L zoom.

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.

    Wednesday's northbound (tt/east) Gold Bar Turn had only two light units.

    Both of those coaches are actually part of the consist for the Winter Park Express, Amtrak's successor to the Ski Train; Century Link is apparently a sponsor.

    Thanks. I guess ski season is over for sure.

    Monday (4/24/17) yellow bonnet GP40x 3034 teamed up with a GE unit to pull a string of empty Boeing 737 fuselage racks north (tt/east) past the marsh. The cars will work their way back to a plant in Kansas.

    The AT&SF GP40x has regular B-B trucks + the distinctive flared radiators of the SD45. The UP GP40x had special B-B trucks unique to that unit.
