Going Down

Any trip to Bakersfield requires a side-trip to the Tehachapi Loop near Keane. It was a bit stormy, so the light was really nice.


A BNSF hopper car train swings around the Tehachapi Loop in the dramatic clouds and sunlight and disappears into the Tunnel 9; passing under itself and leaving the loop. Helper locomotives are at the end of the consist and in the middle (barely visible where the train goes behind the cone-shaped hill to the right of the frame).
