Watching trainmasters wheel the evening commute train past the stop at Saratoga Ave on the Los Altos branch with mars light on.

FM switchers at Newhall Street yard, getting up in the tower with pneumatic tubes delivering consist info from the office below, or even better bumming rides on the switch engines.

Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad on Daves Ave.

Seeing the Santa Cruz local on the bluff above New Brighton Beach when the tracks were on the old alignment.

Wig wags and as someone already mentioned cabooses.

F units on Altamont (the fab 5)

Black widow paint on the SP.

Sierra steam.

Hey, you can still see some of this at Niles Canyon Railway and the other great organizations in NCAL. Come on out and get dirty!
Peace out.
Wes
