    The railfan who got me started on rail photography--such that it is--was constantly scoffing at photographs taken from the wrong side of the train.

    Obviously he was wrong.

    Got any more?

    I have hundreds of shots from the "wrong" side I would love to have all my shots in perfect light, but the silly people who designed the railroads don't understand this! Some of the spots I frequent are just not aligned to ever be in good light with a good field of view, so I wouldn't get anything if applied that criteria. If you click on any of my photos here you will got to my Flickr page, where you can select the "trains" album and peruse shots going back almost 10 years now.

    Same train as the B&W above, but about 20 miles east, leaving the bay area at Port Chicago to cross the delta on the way to Stockton.

    Green hills won't last long. Another dry year.

    I don't take a lot of "Going Away" shots, but I liked how the signal added to the picture

    Soon it will look like old, worn, velvet-covered overstuffed furniture. One of my favorite scenes in the California hills.

    To the great uninitiated--specifically, me--that thing ghosting along with no engine sound would be a little spooky. Like the "Steam Locomotive" I saw on a tourist RR once. I was standing by the track expecting the warm radiated heat coming off the boiler as it passed. Instead I got the thrum of a 45-tonner disguised as the tender. Messed with my mind.

    These guys got stuck just outside Richmond yard waiting for a mechanical issues to be fixed on an outgoing freight before they could go the final half mile of their trip. They had just dropped off the UPS load at North Bay.
