1907 Yosemite Valley #330 Observation Car

NILES CANYON, CA -- The historic Yosemite Valley #330 Observation Car. Built in 1907, it is one of the more historic cars at this location and the only one there made of wood. It's mahogany detail and fresnel lens marker lights make this a unique specimen.

 

night, 95% full moon, 2 minute exposure, "Yosemite Valley" drum head lit for 3 seconds, red and green fresnel lens marker lamps

 

A complete history including restoration photos on the "YV330" can be seen on it's official site at: www.yv330.com/. You should see the "before" picture prior to restoration!

 

"Observe" the Observation car a bit closer!
