Welcome to Cajon Pass Pictures Archive
Sunday July 31, 2004
After being away from the pass for two weeks I was hoping that the closed areas would be open once again. In conversations with Philip he emailed the Cajon Yahoo Group that the areas were open. But, when I got up to the pass the areas remained closed! Some of the other rail fans went to the local district office and it looks like it will not be open until November. Huh, I wonder why? Fears? The brush to high? Our forest have never been as health and robust, so why???
Anyway, I went up to Summit Valley and the first train up was the Southwest Chief, but a going away shot.
Then a consist of a very old Warbonnet heads east.

Back down at Draw Bar Flats a cool consist comes up. All the Flavors of BNSF.
