Steam Train A-Comin!

Union Pacific 844 is on its way back from Sacramento to its home in Cheyenne WY. After spending the night at Sparks, it set out east about 8 AM, and Lisa and I were waiting for it when it got to Fernley.

Lisa was set up well in advance, while I followed the progress of 844 via the train's Twitter feed. When the train tweeted that it was passing Thisbe (the siding west of Fernley), I knew that it would be here in less than ten minutes, and sure enough, along she came:

Bear in mind that this site is right across the street from our house. And people ask why we like the place.
