CP Carson and Dolores Yard on New Year's Eve  Contributor's Pick!       
Before the Alameda Corridor was built (the tracks beneath the cantalevered signal bridge), train watching at Dolores Yard was easy, but by 2002, the yard had been fixed so that getting shots involve stopping at a no stopping zone and pointing the camera out the window. Still, I managed to pull in briefly and get this shot of a warbonnet Dash 9 waiting its turn on the Corridor, while a UP SD9043MAC idles and a southbound UP stacker behind an SD70M gets ready to make it's run down into the Harbor.
