Amtrak train #14, the northbound Coast Starlight, stops briefly at the Salem, Oregon station on November 2nd, 2006. The school bus must wait until the passengers are safely aboard. I shot the photo from a pedestrian overpass. Later that evening this train would turn around in Seattle and head south the next day, when I would board it to return home to Monterey.
By pure coincidence, the locomotive number is 122, while the school bus number is 221.
I almost didn't get this picture. Minutes earlier it was pouring rain, and it started to rain heavily again within a minute or two of the train's departure.
