Three-Car Train, Butterfield

Butterfield is an additional twelve stops beyond 16th St.  That intervening stretch, unfortunately, does not have any photo coverage, so far, in this series.  Its major defining feature is a lengthy and complex overpass takes the RT through an area where the U.S. 50 Freeway, the Union Pacific "Fresno Line," Folsom Blvd. and other city streets pass.   

A three-car inbound train is preparing to leave Butterfield, terminal stop in a much earlier era, on this winter afternoon.  The maximum speed for cars from both manufacturers is 55 miles per hour.
