Jack Doyle's Christmas 2000 Charter - December 3, 2000

Text and photos by James Bow.

Jack Doyle's annual Christmas charter was held in the first Sunday of December. Over twenty railfans turned out for the opportunity to take pictures of PCC 4549 for the last time in the year 2000. The Christmas charter of the past offered a variety of photo locations and lighting conditions, ranging throughout the system, from clear noon skies to early winter twilight.

This charter was no exception. Railfans were greeted with sunny skies and a spectacular sunset to cap things off. These photographs tell the story:
