Amtrak CA 2106 ETS 10-9-18

Amtrak CA 2106 ETS 10-9-18

Amtrak California # 2106, a Siemans SC-44, pulls to a stop (but still moving when this was taken...) in the Emeryville Train Station in -Emeryville, CA. In the background is the Hyatt House in Emeryville... Taken by a Rolleiflex T with a Tessar 75mm ƒ 3.5 lens on Fomapan 400 120 film.

First shot of one of these locomotives I got in revenue service...

Rolleiflex T = max shutter speed of 1/500 second; taken at that speed...

That Hyatt House is recommended, if a) you are not on a budget, and b) you have an overnight stay, as you are catching an eastbound California Zephyr from a southbound Coast Starlight. (or a SB Starlight from a WB Zephyr - you have an overnight stay in either case...)
