Going through a collection of slides I bought from Rik Anderson, came across this one from May '82 of an Amtrak special at Beaumont CA.  Photo by Steve Gartner.

Nice shot from Steve Gartner. I traded tons of slides with him and he drove to New Jersey back in the 1970's as he had relatives here. 

I gave him a whirlwind tour of North Jersey (Croxton, E'port, Oak Island, Kearny, etc.)

He sent me a mess of slides he took on his drive back to California. Helluva nice guy.

Thanks for the additional info guys and nice to hear from the original photographer!  Sounds like a great excursion to have been on; would love to cover that territory in daylight.

Love the comment about the concern of the big GEs not making it!
