Metrolink 883 with Two Horns and UTA Frontrunner car

I just got of this Metrolink train from Oceanside. During the ride, I noticed that the train was using a very nice K5LA mixed with P2 horn. With plenty of waving, jumping, and dancing, I got the engineer to give YouTube a sample of it's stellar K5LA. (You're WELCOME!) If you look close, you can see that this is also Metrolink's blankest locomotive. (Note the white paint around the plow.) Enjoy the video.

Twenty trains rolling through Heroes Park (Surprise Ending)
My friend blueydsniper came all the way from Coranado in San Diego to visit me in Heroes Park and here's the video of what we saw there. Pretty good day. I let him use my tripod, so that's why there some hand held shots. -----------------------Highlights are: 1. A forgetful crew running a Metrolink train going North on the IEOC left the headlights shining bright on the trailing cab car. The BNSF O-LACSDG (Officer Special from Los Angeles to San Diego.) 3. Metrolink F59PHI 883, (with the blankest paint scheme of all SCAX Phase III locomotives. The paint above the plow is white, unlike other Metro-blanks.) 4. A Pacific Surfliner with a baggage car; (door open,) six Amfleets, two Horizons, and two F59PHI locomotives. I recently repaired my bicycle air horns, so I included some footage of it as well. Enjoy the video!

Nevada Steam Trains 4th of July 2014
Happy 238th birthday, America! Celebrate the 4th of July in grand style as we visit the Nevada State Railroad Museum for one of their annual steam ups on July 4th, 2014! The museum brought out two historic steam locomotives and their very unique McKeen motor car 22, all from the Virginia and Truckee Railroad. The 2-6-0 "mogul" type engine Glenbrook was also out on display. After visiting the museum, we travel up to Sparks, NV to watch the July 4th Fireworks Celebration there. As always, enjoy!
