Preserving "America's RR"
An old friend came back to visit and the "crew" got together to do a little railfanning. Haven't been out for quite a while. Motivated me to change that.

Nice photos, but why not add some narrative/captions so members who do not reside in the Puget Sound area will learn something about our area. I have edited the photos so you can hit "edit post" to go back and add captions above or below each photo to show the locations, etc.

Actually, picture 2 was taken at Steilacoom, just south of Sunnyside Park. Pioneer is north of Bridge 14, the drawbridge, adjacent to the Chambers Bay Golf Course, a couple of miles north of Steilacoom.
