One of two AMTK P42DCs I saw used on AMTRAK California in early January of 09, the other being #205.

I have taken many photos from this location in daylight with multiple F59PHIs in the foreground, however the Oakland Bay bridge is hardly visible. On my last day in the Bay area I ran out of time, visiting the AMTRAK shops in the evening with falling light. Most photos turned out poorly, however the background is much better looking! Oddly enough one cannot see Angel island in the background at dusk.

PS. The marker lights are red, however they usually come out yellow in my pictures
