Train Jumping on the Campaign Trail
On the 4th leg, after thumbing rides up the coast he finds himself on the 80 east onramp. He unknowingly gets picked up by a retired conductor, a coincidence leading to a great adventure traveling down the OneStoryRoad campaign trail.
"My last ride took 7 hours to hail, during which I wondering about train hopping. I even googled it," Caleb says.
The driver laughs, beginning to tell him very specific details of the railroad system, eventually saying he was a conductor for that very track.
As they neared the Sacramento the conductor asks, "So where do you want to be dropped off? I-5 or near the Roseville Yard?" It didn't take long to decide, Roseville was the obvious choice. As they pass the yard, a train on the far left track begins to pull away.
Suddenly he feels the car accelerating as the Conductor presses the gas, and begins racing through town chasing down a 100 car freighter. Eventually catching it and even taking Caleb to the boxcar to complete the rest of the lesson of how to jump trains.
