This book is both a pictorial and descriptive tour of the BNSF Railway over Cajon and Tehachapi Passes and across the Mojave Desert. Discussed are operations, traffic corridors, histories, facilities, train watching sites, data, maps and other information about each.
Included are bits of Santa Fe history as to original mainline construction and stories on how the routes originally were trails, wagon roads, highways, and then railways. The 119 color photos are train panoramas dated 1996-2005 showing the routes and terrain, and illustrate the locomotives and paint schemes used during various time periods. The Trackside Tour sections describe the routes as a guide to the best sites to see trains. The book’s theme is the countryside through which the BNSF Railway operates – “Southern California Style."
Color laminated hardcover, 8.5x11, 112 pages, 100 lb. stock, 119 color photos.
