After spending the summer home in Socal, I'm back in the Bay Area for school; after celebrating a great Cal victory, I spent labor day at Niles Canyon to see and ride this beauty.
First two shots are approaching Brightside yard during my brief morning chase
Shot while riding the train; certainly was nice being able to see and hear the engine rather than being cooped up in an amfleet car;
Lastly, the engine backing out of Sunol for another run through the canyon (my brother took this shot):
Hope you enjoyed the shots; my hat's off to the GGRM and PLA for making it happen; thanks to them we have big steam in the Bay Area!
