Scouting a spot to photograph the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Blue Unit Train August 11, 2014 with Chris Guenzler. Parked at the Trestles Parking Area, next to Carls Jr. at Exit 72 off the I-5 at the south edge of San Clemente, California. The final destination was above San Onofre Creek, about 3 miles down old/closed Hwy. 101 between I-5 and the coastline. The Circus Train was scheduled to leave at 9:30 a.m., but did not leave until about 11 a.m. With various stops, including problems with the third flatcar from the end and passing Amtrak and Metrolink commuter trains, it arrived at our location at 3:40 p.m. (And I have the sunburn to prove it.) It was 80 degrees with a nice breeze of 7 mph.
