Day 165—Fenced In

As I passed by Southern Pacific Engine #2252 prominently on display at the edge of the Union Pacific Rail Yard where Atlantic becomes Vernon Street entering Roseville, I thought I would stop and take a few shots. I had never noticed that the engine, beautifully painted and preserved, is surrounded by a high wrought iron fence. Because of the fence, I couldn’t get a good angle on the engine. And, some railroad workers were replacing solar panels on either side of the engine making a good shot today improbable. I finally settled on the fence surrounding the engine. Although these are very similar with only subtle differences, I couldn’t decide which I preferred so I’m posting both.
