Nothing special about this shot, other than the original file size was a whopping 9568 x 6376 pixels. The Sony A7r4 61mp senor leaves a ton of room for cropping. I mainly got it for wildlife, but had it with me this afternoon.

The Geeps have disappeared from the California Northern on the old SP West Valley Line (Davis to Tehema), but they were out in force to the south on the old SP West Side Line (Tracy to Los Banos) on Monday morning. Here a GP15-1 and a GP38-2 share duty near Gustine California.

Wonder what happened to the Amtrak loco. Edit: I heard that 2009 (CDTX F59PHI) was stuck on a siding down near Atwater California (former home of Castle Air Force Base), With no head end power, the passengers were transferred and the BNSF GE here deadheaded the cars back to Oakland.

Kind of lonely on this forum these days...

A California Northern Genset making a run around move in pretty solid rain to head back south at Cortena California

While watching the UP from here I also watched this Kite dispatch a mouse for dinner,. This tree sits right on the mainline.

Interesting consist; I'm guessing they were swapping out yard power from Richmond. There is an old SD and a Genset at the rear of this one heading into Franklin Canyon
