Amtrak 143, the second in the consist, caught fire and burned beyond
repair. This is looking north. The white car on the road (I-80) is mine.
I had to walk across the salt flats, a 1/4 mile or so, and wade through
the water (it is probably 100 feet across the water, but only 8 inches
or so deep.) Oh, what one does for a picture!
