Even in the shade it's 100+ degrees at 6pm in Sacramento. The crew of UP Y578 has just finished up their switching duties and is returning to the yard but has to hold for an outbound Amtrak California train before they can proceed.

Is that the bridge over the Sacramento River between Sacramento and West Sac? I took a photo of a Sacramento Northern RS2(?) crossing that bridge in the early 70's.

Nice shot from the I st bridge Marshall. I have a lot of night exposures from inside this bride, but have yet to catch something crossing it during the day. Keep up the good work.

Cool photos! I need to get back up that way, but will probably wait until fall and cooler temps. Love the motion shot of the San Joaquin.

Yeah, it's definitely toasty outside. But being born and raised in San Diego, I'll take the dry heat over the wet stuff.
