While in Anaheim on business, I decided to take a slight detour to the Fullerton Santa Fe Depot before heading back to Santa Barbara

(83K) Just before #775 pulled out, a crewman ran up at the last minute and climbed aboard

(95K) A four-unit War Bonnet paint freight rolls through. Notice the "BNSF" painted in red on the side of the locomotive!

(121K) Atop the pedestrian crossover bridge, a beautiful shot of a freight passing beneath. I had to get the camera lense close to the protective cyclone fencing so I could look through the holes to get a clear unobstructed photograph

(87K) A Santa Fe work train stopped right in front of the depot just so I could photograph it! I appreciated it very much

(54K) Rats, the work train only stopped because they needed the signal at the west end ot Fullerton Junction. Here, the engineer is talking to the Santa Fe San Bernardino Sub DS
