Have to look a bit harder these days for the roads with no traffic!





Forgot about the Amtrak incident south of Hanford (heard the dispatch on the scanner and drove out there...):


And the Texas run in the GMC:

All the pics look great. However, the first and last in post #1 look like something that should have been in a SSR brochure. Great photos, thanks for sharing. Always thought that yellow R's are the most photogenic

Slick (1774) turned 9 yesterday 11/19/12. Maybe they're related. Funny how they extended the build year into December that year.
