Railfanning at Roseville Depot

These photos are the first of many to come! I just moved up to Citrus Heights which is only a few miles from the Roseville Amtrak Depot and yard. We are unpacked and moved in, so now I can once again pursue my hobby. Here are the first photos taken on September 24, 1999
