Glidden Sub Hosts BrightLine Trainsets

May 8, 2017

The third time is the charm, albeit with less than ideal conditions.

“What the heck are you talking about?” you ask. Sorry. Allow me to elaborate.

I missed the first two shipments of BrightLine trainsets through the Houston area because of misplaced priorities, namely work commitments.

I promised myself that the third, and last, shipment of these brightly painted trainsets would not evade my camera. Well, today was the day.

They departed Sacramento this past Saturday 5/5/2017, reaching the Houston area today, Monday, 5/8/2017.

    Good shot, I hope the third time will work for me as well as it comes across the Huey P Long Bridge in the N. O. area

    Thanks for the fine video. Looking forward to riding Brightline train sets on upcoming Florida trips. Also thanks for the Willowbend location. Grew up in Willowbend in the mid50’s through the majority of the 60’s. While playing Little League ball at Homeco Field across South Main it was possible to see Santa Fe’s California Special on its way down South Main heading westward during evening games.
