I Think Working From Home Next Wednesday is a Good Idea

Union Pacific railroad's steam locomotive 844 is coming to Sacramento and the Bay Area this weekend while I'm in Montreal, but according to the Western Heritage Tour Schedule, it will leave Oakland next Wednesday at 9 AM, and head for Stockton via Altamont Pass, which means it will be coming through Niles and passing within a mile of my apartment sometime between 9 and 10 AM. I could walk to Niles Junction, I think -- it's just beyond the BART tracks that run along the eastern edge of Quarry Lakes Park.
