The Diesel Shop, we have 4695: C44-9W built in 2000, 8254: ES44C4 built in 2014, and 4551: C44-9W built in 1999.
I took pictures of flower gardens, etc. Finally, the end of the unit oil train appeared. So it took almost 10 minutes to pass.

Then an Amtrak train with engines 162 and 127 came, stopped, and went back. Because the train was long but did not have the taller Superliner cars, it was probably a long distance train that came from New York or Washington that was being turned.
How many times do you catch engines with a flower garden in the foreground? They were 2865: ES44AC built in 2014, 2852: ES44AC built in 2013, and 5539: SD60F built in 1989.

[Street View It looks like someone has done a major trimming of the green area between Oct 2016 and June 2017. I wonder if they are now developing the north end of the park as well.]

[This was probably taken from 18th Street. Note the towers of the Canal Street RR Bridge in the background.]
