The westbound California Zephyr came through Agency, Iowa this evening with two dome cars on the end.  They were the Puget Sound and the Sierra Hotel.  Amtrak #5(07) was running on time.

I really like how the zoomed out part of the clip shows the rippled, apparently not active, siding to the right of the main line tracks.

Isn't that an optical illusion? The siding looks normal when the train gets close to the camera!

Yeo, wonder why the rails haven't been sold for scrap??
