Lucky for the brakie Editors Pick! Contributor's Pick!       
This southbound throttles up as it passes the Pomona Yard office in a mid afternoon thunderstorm, its ground crew relieved there will be no work for them here today. An SD 40-2 and two 45's make up the power.

T. P. Bruss General Very remarkable scene with some splendid motive power. The nice masonry tower on the left appears quite new, for that time. The building partially visible beyond SOU 2353 (MP15DC) on the right looks like it might be an older, wooden tower. Cool photograph regardless. 11/12/2016 6:20:52 AM
Mike Maskel General NICE SHOT 3/12/2018 10:18:17 AM
Robert Anderson General Like the wet pavement,can almost feel the drizzle. Good mood and working/action shot. Red ribbon in my book. 7/10/2018 2:53:18 AM
