I havn't seen really seen anything with action. I work right up next to a UP mainline with a small yard and theirs not much action. Engines will come in and build consist once in a while. An Amtrak California train once in a while then BART runs right next to it. Nothing really worth going to and its not a safe area. I live a block up from the BNSF mainline so I see Amtraks pull through all day well into the night and a freight it seems every 20-30 minutes. Sometimes sooner. Engines will sometimes go racing by and then long freights, short freights. Water is right their and they go over a cool looking old bridge. Combines Fishing and trains and its not far from home so thats what makes it worth it for me. Good Luck!
