ATSF Climbing the Pass

Santa Fe U36C #8711 leads this TOFC train with an almost solid GE set of motive power east over the North Main at Pine Lodge in Cajon Pass in 1984.
Thanks William! I've always tried to make the most of the dramatic photo opportunities Cajon Pass offers. Great backgrounds are always a certainty.
You're welcome Herb. It's nice to see photos such as these, because the power has long since been retired never to be filmed again. When I see some of my photos I have that has power that has been retired never to be filmed again it makes me very proud that I have photos of it. Keep up the great work
I certainly agree about the feeling of recording an image that is unique to you alone. History that can no longer be photographed, even more so. There's something special about all the copyrights one owns.
