Railroad picture of the day

One big problem with the Union©™® Pacific©®™'s big wavy flag emblem is that when the locomotive gets dirty, the flag starts to look like those poor bedraggled flags you used to see on cars in late 2002, after the WTC had ceased to be a national tragedy and had become just another political football; the attention of the nation may have moved on, but the flags just stayed there, getting more tattered and soiled as time went on.

This picture was taken through the window of the #70 bus as it carried me home from work tonight; since it was sunny, the Pentax was able to focus in on the side of the Eng! and keep the focus there even though a fast-moving stop sign was sweeping in from the south.
