The 3751 at the Los Angeles Union Station

The 3751 at Los Angeles Union Station. The auxiliary tender had the "Let's Roll" quote placed on it earlier this year.

Leaving L.A. the tracks run in the middle of a highway for several miles.

The massive former Santa Fe station in San Bernadino.

After San Bernadino the tracks turn north for the ascent to Cajon Pass.

The countryside between Barstow and Williams. This is always covered late at night on Amtrak trains.

The Grand Canyon Railroad's daily train departs for the South Rim. This scene, with the smoky Alco assisting the steam engine, is repeated every day during the summer in Williams.

For our charter to the canyon on Saturday we had a doubleheader for the last stretch to the south rim.
