Railroad picture of the day?

A southbound commuter train approaches Poinsettia station in Carlsbad, California

We drove out for an errand this morning, and as we were heading north along the Santa Fe mainline, I saw a southbound Coaster train pop out from under the distant bridge and scuttle towards the station we had just driven past.

The CBC, as usual, failed to respond to the moment, so I got this one washed out distant photo, but the train had zipped on by by the time it finished s-l-o-w-l-y writing the image out to the smartmedia™ film card.
