Amtrak Cascades Mud Bay Surrey BC 08-04-2005 10-28AM
I remember the occasion very clearly. I had seen a photo taken at this location and worked out how I could catch the Cascades on the trestle - given that Amtrak is not noted for precise timekeeping. In order to get on the sunny side of the train I had to scramble over some riprap. And as I did so the cell phone in a holster on my belt fell, irretrievably, between the rocks.
Actually, having a complete matching set of cars and locos in the correct livery is also not an everyday occurrence, as my other photos of this service attest
- Added to the Cream of the Crop pool as most interesting.

And to my English fans please note that this is a picture of a Complete Train!
