The Cantilever's Swansong?

Message to those who know Tehachapi, I think the days are numbered of this grand old cantilever gantry. There is a newly set concrete base opposite, also a new two head three aspect signal lies on a flatbed next to it. The signs aren't good.

 

For the minute, it continues to do the job it was intended for and is showing a clear aspect for an approaching southbound train as another double stack heading north passes under.

 

BNSF power is ES44DC #7364, C44-9W #5089 and SD40-2 #6882.
