It's may of 2013 and of course I've found rain in the desert. Specifically at Barstow.
I'm just getting over 'Rona, so nothing new this weekend.

Paducah geep 8278 still in IC paint takes some time off at Montgomery, AL [06-03-1984]
Nowadays, such a grease slick would fetch an EPA inspector lickety-split... Back then, I understand this was common--was it accepted?
No rain in Barstow when I was there in 2009
Love the FP45, but what's with the UP SD40-2 behind it? Looks like an ex-Mopac unit?
I never gave it a second thought, other than to step around it.
It was very, very common. Nobody ever paid any attention.
The garage where I learned mechanic work, at both original and second locations always just dumped their drain oils and other fluid. The motor oil was used to keep dust down on a driveway adjacent to the shop. Emptied oil cans were simply burned. Etc. Nobody paid attention, until the later 1960's, when change began.
Same here in 2014 when Amtrak #3 paused for a few minutes and allowed us time to pose on the nose..
