Baby Bullet @ Brisbane

Caltrain began "baby bullet" express service a couple of years ago. The trains use MP36 locomotives and matching Bombardier coaches in an eye-catching red and white paint scheme. The trains make the San Francisco to San Jose run in just under an hour, competitive with driving.
Yep. All of Caltrain's trains are push-pull runs. They operate in pull mode to San Jose and push on the way back to San Francisco.
Yeah, my white balance was off, I realize that, but I liked the photo because it was a good action shot. I'll probably redo the color in photoshop at some point. Thanks for noticing.
