Trips and other special collections of train photos.

These are collections of photos that seem to go together. They are like stories and could be about people, places or special trips that are nice to group together.

Note: Only a very, very small percentage of the photos at this site are contained in these collections. Click Here to see the Table of Contents for this entire site.

Last UP Santa Cruz Local, December 28, 2009
On Monday, December 28, 2009 the UP ran what is likely the last UP Santa Cruz Local. In January 2010 the Sierra Railroad is going to be leasing and operating the line. December 28, 2009 was a rainy overcast day. That seemed fitting really.
