Dude with all do respect that is not an Iron ore train man that's a unit coal train brother. There are no steel plants in the bay-area.

This is Southern Utah iron ore for export to China through the Port of Richmond. Not coal. Hence the designation O, which under Union Pacific parlance stands for Ore. IS - Iron Springs, UT; RM - Richmond, CA.

An ore train out in California, that's one unique and possibly odd sighting too. I may have seen loaded and empty ore trains headed to/from ship loading docks along the east coast and/or canada, but this a first, nice shot by the way!
