“It was a beautiful day. The train was a small train – a locomotive I think, with no more than three or four cars, single level.” explained Hubert Hanrahan, Capitol Corridor’s retired Chief Transportation Officer who, in December 1991, was a conductor on board the Capitol Corridor’s very first run. “The rest is history,” he went on to reflect. “It’s been very successful.”
The Capitol Corridor train passes through 170 miles of some of Northern California’s most beautiful landscape. In October and November 2016, we gave riders the opportunity to showcase their favorite views along the route by entering our photo contest “Outside My Window.” The contest ended on November 5, and our winners have been selected by popular vote and notified. We had over two hundred excellent submissions, and after the two-week voting period, these are the five images that came out on top.
Halloween is just around the corner, and that means its time to get into full pumpkin decorating mode! If you haven’t had a chance to create your perfect jack-o’-lantern yet, here are a few pumpkin patches we discovered that are conveniently located along the Capitol Corridor route.
