Welcome to Cajon Pass Pictures Archive
November 21, 2004
During the night I thunder storms were hitting the low lands hard, I wonder what was going on since the forecast was for winds. So, I got up at 6:30 got ready and headed out. In the distance on the 215 I noticed the snow level had dropped very low and I knew that there had to be snow at the pass. Sure enough starting at the 15 merge it was a winter wonderland. Everything was covered in snow! But, trains were being held up going east, but not west. So, I headed to Cajon Station and it was very slick and driving on snow. When I got there I first got the picture below and followed him down.
Then through Blue cut.
Another consist came through Cajon Station.
And heading up a helper set helps a consist up.
Then Amtrak came through around 8:30, a bit late.
So, I tried my luck and see if I could get up to summit and I did! It was beautiful and caught this UP set.
This is what Summit looked like.
And Lugo was the same, very white.
A consist finally heads down in the blinding snow.
Here is another consist through Alray.
And this is through Log Cabin.
I followed the train up to Mormon Rocks.
The same consist at Summit.
The helper set heads down.
And another set heads down.
I love this picture through Log Cabin.
And my all time favorite is through Alray.
