Remarks & Notes 
Sunday in the Park with Doyle*

How I spent my third anniversary: Southern Pacific GS-4 class 4-8-4 4449, with SP SD40E 7342 as a helper, crosses Stenner Creek Trestle as it blasts its way up Cuesta Grade out of San Luis Obispo, California. This train, dubbed the World's Fair Daylight, is returning home to Portland, Oregon, after visiting New Orleans, Louisiana - home of the 1984 World's Fair. (As for my wife, who allowed me to railfan on our anniversary? We're still married after over 35 years!)

(* - With apologies to Stephen Sondheim. And, actually, it was a Wednesday, not a Sunday. And more of a cow pasture, not a park...)
