    Any specifics on the exact location, Paul? I'm sorry to say that I have done very little RR exploring in the bay area. Any more details would be appreciated...

      During the day, they're usually tied up on a siding directly across from the South San Francisco CalTrain station at Grand & Dubuque streets, Tom. (What switching work yet remains on the peninsula line is done at night, after the evening commute rush on CalTrain.)

      Easiest way to get there, if you're heading southbound out of SF on 101 is to take the Airport Avenue exit, turn left (south) on Airport and then left again (east) on to Grand, following it under the freeway overpass. Northbound, I believe your exit would be Executive Drive and then you'd have to double back south onto Dubuque. Can't miss it either way.

          BTW, I was out in the Los Angeles area this weekend (the last week of September) and was truly surprised to see how many SP engines there are still running around without the yellow patches. I'll try to get a list together when I start cataloguing the pictures. I will say that most of the "survivors" are SD40Ms, and I assume the UP has neglected to repaint them as they probably have no plans to keep the majority of them around.

            UP could probably use that list once you've got it together. They're probably tearing their hair out trying to determine exactly what they've got down there by this time!
