Five units north
Title:  Five units north
Description:  There's a surprise in there too-the 4th unit is a BQ 23-7. The spot I had there at Collier was excellent-nice little pull off to park in, shaded by pines, easy to sit and have a soda and read the paper. The only drawback was that the trains often came on you so fast you could not really set up. The afternoon was not so bad-the parking area was on the west side of the tracks-but the morning was a challenge, as you could not get over to the sun side fast enough. So this is a dark side shot. So it goes.
