The steam locomotive #844 is a historic engine (not a part of the Snow Train or Fun Train) that's been preserved by the Union Pacific and that tours the West every so often.
Iowa Pacific's "Sky View" car:
Union Pacific's Steam Locomotive #844 crossed our bridge some time ago:
Interesting how they can run a pickup truck on our rails:
Union Pacific runs these diesels thru our station once in a while:
Amtrak's Coast Starlight train. The tall building in background is Martinez's County Jail & Administration building. The old historic railroad station is alongside the train:
The Reno Snow train and Reno Fun train contain many different, varied passenger cars that were formerly on different railroads all over the country. A nice "antique railroad cars" collection. This one - as you can see - is from the Louisville & Nashville:
The Milwaukee Road:
I can't figure out this one's "provenance" but it's a nice one anyway:
Another that I can't figure out:
"Pacific Sands". . . . Possibly a Union Pacific, or a Central Pacific? Its colors match UP's modern locomotives, but also match the Central Pacific's passenger car that's shown a few photos farther below here. . . .
Another of "unknown origin" to me.
Maybe this one was used once-upon-a-time on the Hudson River line?
Maybe another Southern Pacific? Its colors match those of the SP shown earlier. It likely has a dining area on the bottom (note that it is the Sierra Hotel, and at some time in the past may have had sleeping berths). . . . Some of the cars on the Rocky Mountaineer train that Eleanor and I took a few years ago had upstairs observation decks and separate seating/dining/sleeping areas on "ground level," so I think this has a similar arrangement. Again, a nice outdoor rear platform. . . .
Santa Fe's "Vista Canyon". . . .
"Tioga Pass" from what railroad I couldn't figure:
The Great Northern's "City of Spokane". . . .
New York Central's "Portland". . . .
Lotta locos here. The "silver" fronted steamer is parked on permanent exhibit in our station:
Iowa Pacific's "Prairie View". . . .
"Chambersburg Inn," rail line unknown to me:
Just a nice new-looking diesel:
Amtrak's California Zephyr "Silver Lariat". . . .
On the trestle near my apartment - Burlington Northern Santa Fe:
Hauling a long line of containers:
Nice view from a bit farther away, with Mt. Wanda behind it:
A nice looking "Chessie" passenger car, the "Chapel Hill":
A brand-spankin'-new Union Pacific locomotive;
Busy day at the station:
Lowest number I've seen thus far:
Circus! It didn't stop in Martinez; must've been on way to Oakland:
Oil tank train. A rarity on the downtown line:
Georgia RR's "Dearing" Pullman:
Canadian National. Nice rear observation platform!
Union Pacific's good old #844 going thru our station:
The sign indicates they've developed "drone" locomotives!
Don't know what rail line this one's from, but it's a nice looking "bubble top". . . .
The Kansas of "American Railway Explorer":
Passenger cars on this one look just like the ones on the trains out of Penn Station going to Washingon, DC:
"American Railway Explorer" Kansas again, as seen from the side:
Just thought this was a nice color scheme:
This particular Georgia #300 car was used by Presidents Carter, Clinton and Obama when on "Whistlestop" campaigns:
Seaboard Coast Line's Deerwood Beach:
UP tank car hauler:
Dunno what line it ran on, but it's named the "Suits Me" and has an emblem saying it is Pullman Company's 100th car:
California Zephyr excursion train:
The "Virginia City" passenger car reminded me of the kind of car I used to ride from Massapequa Park to Jamaica back in NY in the 1960s:
Definitely from the northeast corridor. Wonder what brought it all the way out here:
Here's a bit more about the Snow Train/Fun Train that I copied and pasted here from Amtrak's page about it:
