    As I was shooting that noon-time departure from Dry Creek, I got a text from a friend saying a MASSIVE un-usual train was taking the CFNR connector from the UP Cal-P line...So I hightailed it to American Canyon, nearly 60 minutes later me and the train meet at the wye almost head to head. So I scoot down to the last crossing in town and then start the chase from there...

    Image 1) The DPU's clear the last crossing in American Canyon headed into the "vast beyond" between here & Schellville.
    Image 2) I get to Brazo's just in time for the power to be crawling out of the tunnel and towards the bridge...
    Image 3 & 4) Off to the SR-12 crossing in Schellville. I get the power coming and bonus shot going with a B-52 overhead.
    Image 5) The train has started around the wye and past the East Schellville yard switch.
    Image 6) Into the vast farmlands of Sonoma County between Schellville and Sears Point this train goes...A crew change is ordered at Ignacio though.
    Image 7) The DPU's have cleared the East Schellville signal and yard crossing. The crew is being told to hold for two Eastbounds as between West Schellville and Black Point is still SINGLE TRACK!!

    The Monday afternoon LD train from San Francisco to Eureka departs from the layover at S.F. Belt Railroad and heads up the Embarcadero to the FIRST NWP/S.M.A.R.T. station at Ghirardelli Square. MUNI had to line up their signals before this train got permission to leave the S.F. Belt yard and run the Embarcadero.

    Yesterday I took the train to the city and walked up and down the Embarcadero catching the E/F-Lines as well as busses galore! I also managed to catch TWO turns of the SF Belt Railway working. First trip had 20/24 and THREE streetcars coming back from Brookville. The second trip had 20/25 as 24 ran into issues as the light power was going back to the yard...I caught 20/25 as I was waiting for an F-Line Car back to Ghirardelli Sq., to catch my train home.

    The NWP 4404 leads a Westbound freight of 30 cars towards San Francisco, CA., as it comes off the Golden Gate Bridge and passes through the "Toll Plaza Platform" it is looking a diverging approach signal.
