A train getaway

Some guys go golfing, others fishing, I chase trains. Last weekend I made a fall trip to the Tehachapi mountain pass. Just as a pure luck thing, Amtrak was detouring passenger trains over the pass this weekend. Normally this route is freight only. I saw a lot of trains. In terms of pure train action, it was one of the best trips I have ever had there. My first trip to the Tehachapi mountain pass was with my father around 1970.

Great set of photos. I've only been to Tehachapi once but it was a lot of fun. And catching the Coast Starlight is an extra special treat. Thanks for sharing the pics.
