I hadn't intended to post this weekend but when I heard on our local NPR station that a steam locomotive would be on display Saturday at the railroad yards in an adjacent town, I had to investigate.
The Union Pacific site had the train's schedule and gave updates on its progress from Reno over the Sierra to Roseville. When we knew it was getting close, we got in the car and drove about 8 miles to the old train station in nearby Loomis.
Quite a few others had the same idea.
We heard it before we saw it and then the gates came down and the bells clanged. Here she comes!
