The Union Pacific "Santa Cruz Local" engineer switches cabs while paused at the wye in Santa Cruz, California yesterday. The train had a real "heritage" mix of Rio Grande, Western Pacific, and Southern Pacific locomotives. :)
Union Pacific 1347 takes an abbreviated "Santa Cruz Local" down Beach Street in Santa Cruz, California yesterday. It will only be a few more weeks before Beach Street and the municipal wharf are congested with summer tourists.
Oh the horror! :-D

Santa Cruz Big Trees and Pacific CF7 #2641 approaches the depot at Felton with the first train of the morning bound for Santa Cruz. The railroad operates on the ex-SP Olympia Branch, primarily hauling tourists with a small amount of freight traffic on the side.
