West of San Angelo

Friday, February 23, 1990

Late Friday afternoon, I went out west of San Angelo to catch an eastbound heading into town. I got shots of the train crossing one of the bridges over the Concho River near Tankersley.

Wes, this has been great fun revisiting the 'good old days' of Santa Fe & UP . . . the locations may be far from southern Cal, but we shared the same trains. Especially like that caboose reflection shot. Nice work! -El

I am now the proud owner of the caboose photographed in the reflection picture. I am currently restoring the inside and am planning to make it the headquarters for my equine ranch. I would like to purchase a copy of this picture from you if at all possible. My email..shortaja@gmail.com --Jason
