Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
California (Tehachapi Pass)
June 17, 1982

Tehachapi Pass needs no introduction to railfans, having been the subject of countless articles, books and videos. Here a Santa Fe freight traverses the pass high on a hillside on Southern Pacific tracks. Note that this was prior to the Return of the Warbonnets era, with blue and yellow freight diesels seen exclusively.
