  8. NEW --> RBBB Circus Train Underway, San Diego County, California (Video) by George Cataulin,

When I saw the new logo (above) on the website for 2009, I thought that they might be putting their own locomotive on the trains this year, but that's not the case.  The logo is just emphasizing, for the first time, their trains.  They still use the power from the railroads on which they are traveling.  This particular logo has the blue shield on the front indicating that this is modeled after the Blue Unit of the circus train.
