Victorville "Double"
Author: cinder

In May 2016, I was fortunate to catch this BNSF meet at "Frost" near Victorville, CA. The wind noise? It's ALWAYS windy in this location! The still picture was taken in 2010.

Very nice!

I read that BNSF plans to triple-track through here in the near future. If so, I would suspect that this unique spot would get completely re-worked in the process and become history.

I believe that some highway work is also planned or underway that will mar this great view.

Is the triple tracking a certain project or just something that is a pipe dream and if so, how far west would the triple track project go? If this would be a "go" then the possibility of a triple track system would be one from San Bernadino all the way to Victorville. That's quite a stretch.

Thanks for this, Robbie. It doesn't look like they've allowed for another track through
this area. Also, with the differing grades on each line, the engineering will get a little
complicated.
