    Last Saturday I went to Tehachapi for a little bit of railfaning, and I thought that I would share a few pictures with you. It was a great day with a decent amount of traffic, but we did have a dead period of almost 2 hours right after we got there, so I was getting a bit nervous that I would see any trains, but fortunately it traffic picked up later, and I think I saw 10-15 trains, enough to keep me happy for some time.

    I will only post a few pictures, but if you want, you can go to my webshots, there I have 48 pictures from the trip, all in 800x600 resolution.

    First train at the loop.
    Actually, when I first saw this picture I was thinking that it could be a good candidate to a "is it real or is it model" quiz, the mountains almost looks like a painted backdrop don't they?

    ok, I decided that 5 pictures is enough to give you an idea of how I spend the day :), if you want to see the rest of the pictures, take a look in my webshot album.
