The swingers are cut into that Grainer for the sole purpose of navigating the territory in which Tehachapi is located. This is the first time actually seeing one in action on the Loop.

Your second photo from the top: A little higher on the hill, a little to the left, and in the fall about 50 years earlier. (My painting from a year ago, based on a photo by Ben Harban)
Yours are all very nice shots, really giving a feel for trains in the landscape.
