Time-lapse of Northern California train route

Time-lapse video of part of Amtrak California’s Capitol Corridor route, from Davis to Richmond, CA. The train makes stops in Suisun/Fairfield and Martinez. The camera is facing northwest for most of the trip, with farm fields of the great Central Valley, the coastal range, rice fields of the Sacramento River delta, the Carquinez Strait, and San Pablo Bay. Along the way are tomato processing plants, oil and gas refineries, the C&H Sugar plant, and hundreds of oil tankers on parallel tracks. Shrouded in clouds, Mt. Tamalpais and Marin County are visible across the water near the end of the video.
