If it doesn't rain...

Today was supposed to be day one of exploring Donner pass, however a minor depression has swept over California bringing much needed rain to many areas, and where we were, lots of it.

Tackling Donner Pass was not on the cards, it was snowing and raining heavily with low fog - and chains were essential if you wanted to attempt the drive. So the command decision was easy; go back to Roseville and check out the conditions there.

We paid a visit to a model train shop where I was lucky to even spend $100 - one of the others flaunted over $500 and intends to spend even more. Shopping for Eastern USA models in the Western USA is a tad difficult.
The guy at the hobby shop said there was a model railroad club open in town so we paid them a visit.

The rest of the day was spent looking for places around Roseville Yard to photograph and film out of the rain. I managed to film about 6 trains, but all but one of the shots was ruined by billowing rain that was landing on the lens - not good.

No photos - crap weather.
