It Dont Look Like a Blue Flag
Title:  It Dont Look Like a Blue Flag
Description:  BNSF 7214 sits in front of the former AT&SF railway depot in San Bernardino for National Train Day. The sign is referred to as a "Blue Flag" and is placed on on the track, or the engine, or car that is the subject of the flag. A blue flag keeps the item, or train from moving and can only be removed by the person, or a person from the craft that placed it. Once someone places a blue flag on the track, it is quite safe to stand on it since nothing is going to move on that track until the flag is removed. Blue flags can also be hung on the side of the train, stuck in the coupler, or a blue light or lantern may also be used. -Craft is a rail term referring to the department that a person belongs to, whether it be the car fixers (car dept.) or the track workers (MOW) or the train crews and yard people (TE&Y).

A Private Sitting with No. 3751
Title:  A Private Sitting with No. 3751
Description:  After the show on Saturday, May 8th, a few of us hung around and shot some images of the steamer. It is pretty unusual to find so few people around 3751 when it is out and about, but the wait was worth it.

Description:  Officially opened on July 15, 1918, and built in the Mission Revival Style to replace the original wooden structure that was destroyed by a fire on November 16, 1916, the station in San Bernardino California was at the time, the largest railway station West of the Mississippi River. Here the security guard watches over the few remaining guests that have gathered on a warm Spring evening to look at AT&SF #3751 that is parked on the pavement off to the right.
