Clear By The Pier. The sun was already below the horizon on the Pacific Ocean in San Clemente, California on April 5, 2022 when Metrolink 925 (F125, EMD, 2015-2021) led a train south along the coast of Calafia Beach towards Oceanside, California. The F125 "Spirit" had a troubled development, and the only 40 of the model that were produced were manufactured for Metrorlink. In the background, the famous San Clemente Pier extends nearly 1,300 feet for pedestrians to explore over the water.
A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
