Subject: 3751 in emergency
I don't think I have shared these shots with anyone before. This was on June 1, 2008 coming back up from San Diego. I had stopped at the rest stop near Camp Pendleton to catch 3751 one more time, the sun was pretty much down behind the ocean haze. I was balancing myself on a wall when 3751 went into emergency right in front of me, I didn't know what I was seeing but I thought the whole was going to blow. It was the backsplash from firebox I guess. Just wish I was in focus for the money shot but I started looking for cover!
