"More train loving goodness :)"
Do you like trains? I do. Jackson St is a great location for watching the UP in action. There's no fences opposite the station so you can get a clear picture of operations. There's usually a little more to see down under the Beale Ave overpass. The railway police can get a little pushy despite it being public property, but I've haven't had too many problems with them. The best views are down on Kentucky but the vertically challenged may have some trouble seeing over the fence down there ;) You can see through it, but it sort of hinders the experience.
