UP 8811
Title:  UP 8811
Description:  UP 8811 on rails... we think... not the best opportunity for a shot, but this being only the third train weve seen in two days, its reaching comedic levels as weve been traveling along rail most of the trip. Highway speed grab shot credit to Cheryl managing to get the lead unit between the smallest break in the trees - good job.

UP 9906
Title:  UP 9906
Description:  UP 9906 number two on mixed freight with grabshot missing most of the consist and power units as they peek in and out of berms and shrubbery along the California coast in a desperate attempt to get a picture of anything on rails after two days of vacation and not a single train in almost a thousand miles of travel.

WRIX 201
Title:  WRIX 201
Description:  WRIX 201 working a siding at a dairy in Trevar, CA - and what a place to put a highway warning stick as Cheryls luck with obstacles continues (this shot was the only one not partially covered by guard rails and such).

BNSF 5374
Title:  BNSF 5374
Description:  BNSF 5374 first of the DPU set pushing behind an eastbound mixed freight in Boron, CA (yes, _that_ famous twenty-mule Borax California) at the edges of the Mojave Desert (joshua trees everywhere) as she comes out of the dust storm and we head into it (these will be last clear through-the-window shots for the trip as our car got thoroughly sandblasted frosting the headlights, windows, and everything else over the next hour or two in repeated sand storms reducing visibility down to twenty to fifty-odd feet).

BNSF 763 - BNSF 5374
Title:  BNSF 763 - BNSF 5374
Description:  BNSF 763 - BNSF 5374 pushing away from the high winds and sandstorms, moving east out of the Mojave Desert near Boron, CA - Joshua Trees aplenty... although shooting opposite directions at highway speed through a window as we enter a sandstorm ourselves seems to present a little bit of a challenge.

Title:  HLCX 3632
Description:  HLCX 3632 at the Bakersfield-McFarland grain silo siding under morning sun and slightly hazy skies, Cheryl working hard to get a good shot as we scoot by the opposite direction. ((In Response To Sir Rafee's Question 2017: Hopefully someone else with more information can answer... this was one of our 'drive-by shootings' done at highway speed while scooting between various destinations.))

Title:  UP 5390 (and UP 5384) DPU
Description:  UP 5390 (and UP 5384) DPU on the back of a long covered hopper southbound in a humorous shot to show Cheryl didnt have a lock on unfortunate timing for objects blocking grabshot rail images in Bakersfield, CA - but at least it wasnt raining, dust storming, or completely blah-skying! Although this does make it easy to find where the picture was taken.

BNSF 3946
Title:  BNSF 3946
Description:  BNSF 3946 at four-of-five with eastbound mixed freight and last of the pumpkins (photo credit still to Cheryl, although with the consist directly abeam, the speed finally gets the better of her and she misses framing a unit - although I cant say anything because even though Ive been slowing down, Im still sure shes trying to frame these at well over 80mph relative speed).

Description:  BNSF 5427 - BNSF 7626 double-header on westbound double-stack headed up off the Mojave Desert floor within minutes of North Edwards as the density of dead plants increases (which surpasses the density of sand without any plants back in the desert... although, honestly, theres far more life than I wouldve expected, either way).

BNSF 7593
Title:  BNSF 7593
Description:  BNSF 7593 at the front of five a couple minutes out of Barstow nearing Lenwood in what is likely still Mojave Desert. (Cheryl still shooting... which will become apparent quickly as we pass the train and she tries to in camera crop - while were going the opposite direction at sixty mph and the BNSF mixed freight shoots past at over 50 mph - which means, I believe, according to relativity, the vector is over 110 mph just thirty yards off our port side).

CSX 5484
Title:  CSX 5484
Description:  CSX 5484 in last of the five heading up this mixed freight going eastbound - and the distance from the camera is deceptive, because I pulled the bottom of it in nearly 10% to correct for the fisheye effect as the camera was zoomed out - were just that close to the rail - so between having to crop in such a short period of time, fighting signs, heat, and me urgently saying, "Snap!" - she did a good job.)

Wheel Sets on an asphalt transport
Title:  Wheel Sets on an asphalt transport
Description:  Wheel Sets on an asphalt transport... again... only now nearing the Tehachapi pass itself... you know the *iconic* _RAIL_road area... where apparently even the railroads understand the economics of the situation and are shipping via the roadway... because, Im sorry, but you cant convince me this rig is short-hauling to a non-rail served customer... way out here in the middle of nowhere, running alongside the famous Tehachapi roadbed. Not that Im a little miffed that I cant seem to catch a train in this area.

Description:  UP 8583 lead of three with mixed freight headed out of Barstow as were headed into it - with all the twists and turns, I havent a clue if that makes it east, northeast, southeast, or southbound...
