907-Trains – Fullerton, CA

Hanging out at the train station in Fullerton, CA (picking up hobos you know). This is an amazing station. All of the cargo that is shipped to this country from China in containers comes through the ports of Long Beach and San Pedro, California. It is loaded on trains to head East. Every few minutes a fully loaded train hi-balls it’s way through the Fullerton station on it’s way to Barstow, CA. You can sit on the benches less then ten feet from the tracks as these huge snakes of steel rumble by you at sixty miles per hour. It’s thrilling. Plus it’s about the hobos.

907-Trains4Do we really need trains this long? Imagine if this was going sixty on track three and you were sitting on the benches down by the palm trees. Super cool.
