Santa Fe Zombie Train by rlkitterman Santa Fe Zombie Train by rlkitterman
Just after seeing the four old boxcars, I saw what looked like a steam engine. I approached and to my surprise it was two very old rusty Santa Fe steam engines, along with two very old freight cars, sitting on a siding. I call this train the "zombie train" because the engines and cars are still there, and could be moved, but they would not really be doing anything themselves.

There is a footpath/jogging trail on the east side of the Sacramento River, which goes down from Old Town to around the California Auto Museum, and runs parallel to the railway.  Just north of the I-305/US-50 overpass, you will see the "zombie train" sitting on a siding.

Ah, thanks. I have never been to Sacramento, so I'll make a point to see the train if I go there. The equipment is most likely owned by the CSRM.

The rust and dirt adds a lot of character. You can almost feel their desire to roar to life once more.
