Golden Hour. The very last light of the day hits the bridge about 45 minutes before sunset. The shadows surrounding the bridge will over take the entire bridge within minutes. This train represents the very last SB train of a very successful Summer-Fall season schedule. Next up will be the Polar Express out of Saratoga and then, after Christmas, Snow Trains will carry skiers to Gore Mountain in North Creek for the first time in too many years to remember.

Finally, the ex BAR BL2 should be right at home MU'ed to an EMD cab as BAR usually ran its BL2's and F units together.
An assortment of photos of the distinctly unique (and 'cute') little locomotive EMD ever built, the BL2! I understand it also makes a tasty sandwich..Oh, that's a BLT! (When a new BL2 is "ordered", it will be served fresh!)
