Day or less Outings

Short outings of a day or less in 2015.

San Jose - January 2, 2015, Friday
The day after New Years in 2015 was a defacto holiday. Almost everybody took the day off but the commutes were running almost empty trains on a weekday schedule. It was a perfect day to go to the train station!
San Jose - February 14, 2015, Saturday
Susie and I do not celebrate Valentine's Day, instead celebrating our own holiday four days later. So on Valentine's Day 2014 I was at our train club running model trains!

South Australia - Sunday, March 19, 2015
