Hehe, well I will keep trying to get you! I have seen the trains through Emeryville, but never when I am actually there with a camera, usually from the freeway or something. Most of Richmond is a bit too sketchy for me to hang out with a bunch of expensive gear waiting for a train if you know what I mean. But I do drive that way after work on Fridays, (3 dollar happy hour at the Hotel Mac in Pt Richmond!) so I will keep trying. I did get these couple of shots (straight into the morning sun) at Giant Highway last weekend, just around the bend from Atlas road.Still love your work. There seems to be a couple of kids that take video and stills of us as we go by in Richmond by Atlas Road by our North Bay UPS facility and at Rheem siding. Once they made a homemade whistle board sign and my engineer and I just had to blow a crossing signal to commend their creativity. They loved it. If you get a chance BNSF departs out of Emeryville from our OIG terminal at hte port to Stege in Richmond then through the heart of Richmond past the RPRC yard and Safeway siding to get onto our main from the UP. Usually empty wells outbound and loaded container trains inbound towards OIG. Keep up the great work, I'm jealous I still haven't made it in any of your photos yet lol!!
