Amtrak 11 at Blossom Hill

The timing was just right this morning to catch Amtrak 11, the southbound "Coast Starlight" at Blossom Hill Caltrain station. The train left San Jose 8 minutes late, but was going at a steady clip by the time it got here. Contrary to regular practice, today's 11 had the baggage car at the rear of the train.

It's always fun when the engineer acknowledges some random dude standing at the end of a platform with a camera, so I was delighted when he he greeted me with two short horn blasts and waved from the cab.
