Remarks & Notes 
Ah, the weekend! What a better way to end a long work week than a relaxing train ride home and a beautiful Bay Area sunset on the first of October? Amtrak 547 from Sacramento is loaded with commuters heading home to the Silicon Valley, while it catches the very last rays of the setting sun. I-680 traffic is at a steady pace too, as you can see the Southbound lanes going left to right in the photo. No more than five minutes after the train crossed the largest double-tracked bridge West of the Mississippi, the lift span went up and an oil tanker headed out on the Carquinez Straits.
