Clear View Restored

I live close enough to the Centerville train station in Fremont that I can often hear a train blowing for the grade crossing at Fremont Blvd. If I happen to be at my computer, I sometimes click on the Centerville RailCam to see what's going past. For the past few weeks, however, I have not been able to see anything because foliage was covering the camera. Sometime recently, however, someone finally noticed and trimmed the tree, so you can see the platform and tracks again.

Incidentally, the window you see on the left side of that shot is where the other RailCam is located, in the bay window of the meeting room where SFSFC holds many of its Board meetings.

As luck would have it, while I was composing this message, I heard a horn, and clicked through to see an eastbound Capitol make its station stop at Centerville. (If you care to click through, the train arrives around frame 0928081913.)
