Black Conduit, Red Port

A Cool looking conduit, port thingey between the Dining Car and the Lounge Car on the California Zephyr. We were stopped in Winnemucca, NV en route to Salt Lake City, UT (for me at least). They had to completely shut down the Locomotive for some kind of service. But they had it back up and running pretty quick, so no big deal.

Right after I took this I was yelled at by a brakeman for being too close to the train. They like to yell at people. Amtrak is lively that way. Most of the customers seem used to being yelled at for doing something stupid.

More from Amtrak here and here.
