Train Target of Opportunity

On the last lap of our drive home yesterday, we noticed that the Union Pacific Rail Team was working at Thisbe, the siding east of Fernley. There is a frontage road here that runs down to Derby Dam. Lisa quickly got out her new video camera (it's much more compact than the big pro camera) and I puttered slowly down the road, then reversed and came back, while she recorded. I have the video here, but because we are home where our internet upload speed is an abysmal 0.6 mbps, it may be a while before I get the two videos uploaded.
