    Kind of a surreal looking pic, almost like the steam from the loco is forming the clouds overhead!

    We were all standing out of the rain under a freeway overpass that crossed over the tracks at that point.

    A heavy rain had just passed, when I grabbed this photo. Good grief. Forty plus years ago. Port of Tacoma GE 110 tonner #705 was busy moving cars around the facility:

    Does being in a train in the rain count?

    And we are getting rain! Lots of it, which is nice at the moment, and provides for interesting train sounds. Here's an eastbound coal drag with a CN unit in the set dragging at a slow crawl out of the yard,

    A lot of people didn't give a second thought about the rain. Me included, even if I had to juggle an umbrella and a tablet... I was half soggy but really, really happy...:)
