This Space for Rent

Railroad picture of the day


I was on my way up to REI and was stopped at the Steel Bridge while a very long transfer freight crossed, when all of a sudden this engine started blowing for the Front Ave crossing (right behind me); it was purely good luck that I managed to get off my bicycle, flip down the kickstand, yank my purse out of the pannier, and get the camera out of the purse, uncovered, and turned on before it was too late to take a picture of the advancing F40 sled.
