  1. Foamers and gross tresspassing

    Foamers and gross tresspassing

    Oh the horror! :-D A group of fans records one of the last trains to visit Davenport, California in February of 2009. Trespassing is almost a way of life on the Santa Cruz Branch as nearly everyone does it. People walking the dog, students, local residents, and foamers! =p
  2. IAIS 6988

    IAIS 6988

    Iowa Interstate QJs 6988 and 7081 lead the record breaking freight run down the middle of 5th Street in Davenport. I would've never though I would see two steam engines on a freight in the middle of a street before this.
  3. IC&E 6102

    IC&E 6102

    IC&E SD40-3 6102, a personal favorite of mine on the IC&E's roster, sits at Nahant Yard. 6102, built as a SD40, was rebuilt and renumbered, but it maintains its old IMRL paint scheme.
