SE Wisconsin Railfan

I am planning a trip west to catch the Santa Fe #3751 as it steams from LA to Grand Canyon via the BNSF and Arizona and California Railroads. Also its run on the Peavine Line. Along with the thousands ?? of other railfans that will be doing the same thing.

I'm flying into Vegas on the Monday that it leaves LA and I'm heading west. I'm hoping to maybe catch it around Cajon and then follow it all the way to Parker, AZ the first day. Then up the Peavine on Tuesday and the Grand Canyon doubleheader on Wednesday.

Looking for ideas for photo spots in Cajon and along the BNSF transcon and any webpages, or anything that might be helpful.
