The Peninsula Before the Wires • by C.N. Southwell — The Peninsula Commutes have been part of San Francisco’s railroading heritage for more than 150 years. With Caltrain embarking on an aggressive project to electrify the corridor, images of F40s hauling bi-levels through the last vestiges of classic Southern Pacific scenes will soon be lost forever.

Portraits of Railroading: Colorful Freight — What does “colorful freight” mean to you? From traditional to avant-garde, we asked 12 artists to contribute their works that best illustrate this concept.
