Dunsmuir Railroad Days 2011
It's June so it's time for a trip up to Dunsmuir for Railroad Days. This year, a chartered passenger train made up of four classic passenger cars (three are stainless steel domes) was in attendance. We traveled up on Friday afternoon a little too late to chase the passenger train up the canyon but we arrived at Dunsmuir and got to tour most of the cars in the beautiful evening sunlight. Saturday was cloudy and had some rain but we had a great time riding speeders, watching the parade, visiting model railroad layouts and also a ride on the turntable aboard UP 1996 the Southern Pacific heritage locomotive. In the evening, we boarded the Black Butte Daylight and enjoyed the views from the dome of the Silver Splendor. We had some clouds until sunset but what a sunset it was! Shortly after the sunset we headed back down to Dunsmuir but before we left Black Butte, we were mooned by at least a dozen guys. The rest of the trip was in darkness but we enjoyed the wind in our hair as we descended into the Sacramento River Canyon with a 10pm arrival at Dunsmuir. It was a great five hour trip! If they bring the train next year, we'll be there again!
