Half an Hour by the Tracks

About a week ago, I had some extra time on the way home from work and the camera in the car. Went to a spot where I thought there might be some mainline action, but it was pretty quiet (no trains). Parked the car, walked to the tracks, and took some shots.  Why not?  It was a hot/warm afternoon and evening.  Lighting is a bit "off" (almost sunset) due to inconsistent WB as I tried to normalize things in post, but I didn't quite get it right.  Anyway, I know it sounds weird, but this is 30 minutes of good relaxation (for me). Nobody else around. Urban solitude.

Looking south... waiting for a train.

Turned around a few minutes later... (same location)... looking north

I heard some loco noise and switching in the background... so I walked past the bridge...

Turned around, heading back to the car... 737 on final for BFI. There's two more in the distance.
