VINTAGE HUMBOLDT TRAINS:

THE EUREKA SOUTHERN RAILROAD

Central California Traction number 70 at Eureka CA c.1992. I think this locomotive was purchased from CCT for use by the Eureka Southern Railroad (former Northwestern Pacific Railroad). Sadly this unit was ultimately trashed and bashed by vandals in the ensuing years.

Bravely Facing the End

How it looked about ten years later. Much of the copper was stolen and the likelihood of it ever operating again unlikely.

Another look.

I happened to see just the lighting that I had hoped for: the rising sun illuminating the front side with a foggy background.

Sequestered at the Marsh

I took this photograph this afternoon. I’ve been watching this tree for several months, and I realized that it is starting to open its leaves to the sunlight. The tree will be full of foliage within days, hiding the bare branches and trunks. For some reason that I cannot explain, this tree inspires my vision.
