After visiting family in Delta on the 9th, I headed down to the tracks to catch the MWCRO which was due to hit Delta at anytime. I parked the car and got out to see if I could see anything down the tracks and as luck would have it the headlights where just coming into view. As the train was passing by I noticed that there was a hobo riding in a CSX box car. This was the first time that I have gotten a good picture of someone riding on the train. After the train passed by I jumped in the car and it was off to Lynndyl to catch a meet between the MWCRO and the ISCLB.

I was not sure that I would be able to make it to Lynndyl before the MWCRO but luck was on my side and I beat it with enough time to get set up and ready to capture the meet.
