Through my Flickr page I've been corresponding with folks all over the country (and the world for that matter) who have the same interest in railfanning. I was contacted by an individual who wanted to use one of my pictures for their blog. I was quite honored that they would think highly enough of it to want to display it to their readers. I gave him permission to use it. Come to find out he's a conductor for Amtrak and does the Capitol Corridor run from Sacramento to San Jose. He may very well have been on the the train in the image in my last post. I haven't heard from him confirming that, but we'll see. It seems like a consistantly smaller and smaller world as we barrel headlong into the communications and social networking era. Here's a link to his blog "Bad Iron"


  1. Nope, not my train! If that's #742 of the 16th, I was enjoying my day off when the picture was taken. I work trains #543/546 (roundtrip) on Tuesday through Thursday, #747 (the last train to San Jose) Sunday nights and #524 (first train out of San Jose) back to SAC on Monday morning.

  2. Well...it was worth a shot! I guess it was more of me thinking "Gee, I wonder if that's his train".


Always glad to have some form of reaction/response to my posts. Caustic or otherwise.
