It's time...

To reveal to you parts two and three of my December trip!

Part two: Carlsbad. Yes, the Carlsbad Village Coaster station. I don't know exactly how it will go beyond the start, mainly how security will be that day, but I still have three months to plan for that. Also, I may Coaster down to Encinitas, but that will be a game time decision.

Part three: Fullerton. Yes, Fullerton, the giant trash can. But when you see the videos from Fullerton I am about to post, you will see how good of a train-watching place it is. There are Amtraks, Metrolinks, and BNSF that go through here. We will take the Metrolink to there. Plus, there, I have a good chance of meeting up with some other railfans.

Here are some videos of both stations:
Carlsbad Village:


Note: In the Carlsbad video, there is a freight train. There are normally four that only go through during the night. On a VERY, VERY rare occasion, something will pop up so that causes one to go through in daylight. As you can tell, it it night time when it passes through, so everything is normal there.

I thought the giant trash can was your bedroom? I'm kidding. I expect lots of videos and photos from this trip.
