Cajon Pass
On a trip to Big Bear Lake in the San Bernadino mountains, to find some F-4 parts, I
literally stumbled on Cajon Pass. Needless to say, I spent some time there. I found a vantage
point where you could see the trains leaving the LA valley and follow them all the way to the
pass.
Upper switching yard where they
drop the pushers. Pushers then
head down the Valley for
another train. I didn't spend
much time there. A RR security
guy was watching me closely and
getting all kinds of nervous. And
this was befor 9-11.
Lower pass. This is near the
I-15 and Rt 38 Interchange.
Lots of places to pull over
and take pictures without
going on  RR property.
Top of the pass. This is along Rt. 138 heading into the San
Bernadino mountains to Big Bear Lake.  It's elevation is high but
it's still in the desert. A number of good vantage points for photos
that are not on RR property. I could have spent much more time
here but I had to get up to Edwards AFB for the following
morning.
