Eastbound in the late afternoon
Title:  Eastbound in the late afternoon
Description:  Coming out of the 150 degree arc at Austin, the railroad reverses direction to gain altitude. This affords nice opportunity to catch an eastbound in good light at 6pm. But that will be all for daylight. Time to head up to the Marysville House for a killer good T-Bone.
