Railfan notes from 2009

< Previous Year | List of Years | Next Year >

I did not do any serious railfan trips until late May this year.

Day or less outings

These are outings in 2009 of a day or less

Modesto, CA - January 19, 2009, Monday
A day chasing 70-tonners in Modesto.
Alviso, San Jose, CA - March 27, 2009, Friday
On March 27, 2009 the Union Pacific ran a special passenger train they called the SLBOA1-27 up the old Southern Pacific coast line. SD70ACe UP 1995 led the train through Alviso, CA.
Santa Cruz Branch - Monday, December 28, 2009
On Monday, December 28, 2009 the Union Pacific (UP) ran what is likely the last UP Santa Cruz Local. I knew the Santa Cruz Local normally ran on Mondays. I was off work so I went and chased the train.
