Fall trip to Dunsmuir, CA
On October 1, I took a trip north along I-5 on the way up to Dunsmuir. The first stop was Woodland where I was lucky enough to catch the end of the switching job there. After a quick stop, we continued north and found the southbound Woodland job heading back from Cortena. Both of these jobs were handled by a single 500-series genset in the red/white/blue scheme. We let the Woodland job go after catching it at a couple locations as we were backtracking from our northward destination. Since we caught it just 10 miles or so south of Cortena where it swaps cars with the Corning Flyer, I figured that we''d be able to catch it before it got back to Corning so we took the side roads. We made it to Corning without seeing it but after a quick look around, determined that we missed it. There was something to the north so we headed a mile north of town to find a single genset parked in the late afternoon sun. The Hat Trick was complete.
We made it up to Dunsmuir and on Saturday, I took my sons to see the CORP in Weed and the UP at Black Butte and other favorite spots. There were many clouds around which hampered photos until close to sunset where they were perfectly highlighted.
