Welcome to Cajon Pass Pictures Archive

September 1, 2005

I got up at 4:00 a.m. to head up to Cajon and try to catch some kind of nice morning shot. 

That is my favorite subject to catch. The early morning light differs from sunset shots each has a different character

I donít know why but it does.And even in the two shots below I just waited a few seconds between each shot

and notices how different each shot came out. The two shots below are the best shots that I have taken in a very long time.

During this trip I wanted to concentrate on Sullivan's curve and catch some trains before the new line is added to the pass.

This shot didnít come up to par to what I wanted, first I needed to wait until the train got a bit more over to the right.

Luckily I got a shot the next day how I wanted to get.

This was an ok shot also of the train going away.I believe that you must try different angle shots,

you never know what might happen.

Point in case, the below shot is one of my favorite, but I continued on and got a great shot of the rock behind.

I don't think I've seen anyone shot from this location at the rocks.

A different side shot from the UP tracks.

While I still can I try to catch Santa Fe units that are still painted in Warbonnet red.

Then a lucky BNSF 7777 comes down main 1.\I really like the new logo.

Cozy Dell is great area to get full engine shots

I've been wanting to get this shot for a while.  I took it at mid-day!

This was a funny unit, three different paint jobs.

This is another shot location that I haven't seen anyone take. This is heading up Main 1 and about to round the curve.

The same consist at Silverwood.

Another consist at Silverwood.

Back down at Draw Bar a UP unit heads west and nice not to have the telephone poles.

This was a cool three unit set at Log Cabin.

An old SP SD35

This didn't turn out as I had hoped, I need to get it over a bit more over to the right.

A nice new ES44AC at Swarthout Canyon Rd.

This a new location for me on upper Swarthout road, I just need to get some height.

And the last train of the day was a H1.
