Reflections at 40 mphI caught this Metrolink train one morning after an night of rain showers. The sun was just starting to peak through the remaining cloud cover. I caught an angle that allowed me to obtain the reflection of the signals in the side of the train. Love this one…

IMG_0564_6x8I was on the elevated walkway between the two sides of the Metrolink station in La Sierra (Riverside, CA) one spring morning shortly after sunrise. It was foggy (see background) along came this freight train pulling a line of similar tank cars moving about 40 mph; in my many days of observing the BNSF trains, seldom had I seen one that had only one type of cars. I loved the image of this train receding into the distance around the bend in the tracts (distance).

IMG_9486_6x8Another train caught this BNSF freight train coming through the La Sierra (Riverside, CA) station at 40 mph. I loved the blend of colors that are caught in this image. For this one, I was on the platform at ground level about 9 am. Another of my favorites!

Steam-engine_8x10-BW_0775bI caught this image on a cool November morning at the Inland Empire Railway Museum in Perris, CA. They run this steam engine one weekend each month. The cool morning and the hot steam combined to produce rain-like droplets of water that showered me as it passed by me. The sun flare was not intentional but does enhance the image.
