If you have any difficulty with the above links, please send e-mail to me about which link is broken. Since I am uploading all these files from the hotel each night, I do not have the time to review them all. I have selected just the video clips that I thought were worthwhile, but I have not had the time to filter which photos are not worth posting. Thus, for now, I have posted all of the photos that we took.

As most of you who are frequent visitors to TrainWeb already know, you can click on any photo on this page to display a larger image of that photo.

At the Fullerton Santa Fe Depot we dropped off Bill Hatrick's wife and children and Kirk Shneider. There were a great number of railfans and other people in the depot who had come to see the 3751. As at most stops, many had still and movie cameras, including several mounted on tripods. A lot of people were waving. I waved back and took pictures of the depot and of quite a few people at the depot.

Ray Burns came to the train and took a number of photos. As soon as the train departed, he headed to the van to drive it to meet me in Los Angeles so that we could unload all our materials from our display booth.
