Carrizo Gorge Railway Goat Canyon Trestle - ABDSP

On my way home from hiking Whale Peak and exploring Inner Pasture I stopped off in Jacumba to meet up with some friends to ride out to the Goat Canyon Trestle in Carrizo Gorge. Let me say this was by far the easiest way I have traveled to to see the trestle.

I had a flat on my MTB and Scotty "C" promised to fix it when I got there, he totally lived up to his promise..thanks Scotty!

Scotty C heads off into a tunnel. Riding thru the tunnels was a blast, especially the really long ones

This train is now becoming famous the longer it sits out there
Raillway Cars still out on the track
The caboose is from Mexico

The funky aqua/turquoise colors of the interior are so cool

Possibly one of my favorite window stickers yet
Practice common courtesy please

Tried out some of the B/W filters for the camera
I don't know what this does

Scott and Greg immediately saw what was wrong with the train, somebody had wedged a piece of wood under the wheels
