Niles Canyon Railway March 16, 2009

Posted by Trisha Lyn Fawver in General Rambling.

As a way belated activity for my husband’s birthday, we went to Niles Canyon Railway to ride the train. He’s begun to build himself a model train set (he & his dad worked on one when he was young) and so he’s been big into checking out trains lately. The train went from one station in Sunol to the other in Fremont, about 30 min ride. On the way there I messed with the Sepia tone on my camera and switched back to color for the return trip. Here’s some of my favorite pics from Sunday:

The birthday boy (29 is still a boy, right?) trying to battle a migraine

I think he called this guy a break engineer? He wants to have this photo printed and take it back for this guy.

Going around the bend

They’re building a Y at the Niles/Fremont station, this is part of that junction

I just liked the sign on this car in their work yard

Approaching the Niles station

The nose of the locomotive… very Thomas the Tank Engine feel

The side of the train

If that was the nose, I guess this is the mouth?
