Nostalgic PLA Equipment Move
Part 7 - Black Widows Under Rainbows
Well, there were at least three
sets of different rainbows trackside on
the PLA/Black Widow chase that soggy yet somehow half sunny Saturday 20
days ago. Got a bad shot of the first one at CP Carter in Newark.
Missed a golden shot of the second one at CP Cherry at Newark. Sorta
rebounded on this one and nailed it a few minutes later down
the road - not perfect though. Finally missed the third chance at
catching a 'bow at Sunol later in the day. This should have come out
nice in good storm light except the second PLA Museum move train coming
out of the canyon ended up stopping just a few hundred feet short of
us. Some reason due to some steam engine mechanical parts smoking up or
Here is the rebound second
shot of the Newark/Fremont. We all missed seeing it until it
was too late at CP Cherry probably no thanks to too much foaming at the
mouth at the PLA train passing.
I don't care what the Manly
Men say, rainbows kick @$$! Since this is now Ahnold country, does that
make me a Girly Man?
