Heh I was in Reno for a student engineering competition that day, so I didn't get the chance to chase; thanks for sharing these great shots though; Can't wait to see the train roll through Berkeley!

Well, if you thought 844 over Donner was cool. Maybe you should join us in Niles Canyon on Wedsnday. We will have the SP 2472 and Robert Dollar #3 steamed up at the interchange with the UP in the morning when 844 steams through. 844 will stop for a period of 5-30 minutes for a little PR and then steam off to Stockton. I'll post some more details if anyone cares.

Everyone's so darn interested in the engine, they missed the Firebow in the cloud over it. Now, THAT's something rare... wink.gif
...and it's in several of the pics, so it wasn't a quirk of the camera! Nice catch, Mike!
