Author: spsniper

Caught this grain train climbing the famous "Tehachapi Loop" Sunday evening just before the sun went down!

Beautiful!  And a perfect use of climbing or drone flying for an elevated view.

Wow, the train goes over itself.

Reminds me of the old Yellowstone Road between Cody and east gate. I should have taken a wider shot. You'll just have to trust me when I say that the road passed over itself here.

Looks to be a well powered "X" train, nice shot.

Fantastic shot, I like the drone angle.

Hwy 99 had a similar loop like that on Siskiyou Pass in southern Oregon early on. The loop also went over the SP mainline.
