7idea Productions went to Cajon Pass in early 2011 to capture modern-day railroading at this spectacular place. We’ll begin in San Bernardino first thing in the morning and head east over the summit and through the Mojave Desert to Barstow.
Thrill to the sound of 10,000 foot-long stack trains grinding up the 2.2% grade and right into your living room! A great variety of trains are featured including mixed manifests, auto racks, coal and piggyback trains. We will visit famous locations such as Sullivan’s Curve, the Mormon Rocks, the daylighted tunnels at Alray and much more. There is plenty of action on BNSF’s new triple track main plus UP trains on the former SP Palmdale Cutoff, making a total of four main lines over Cajon! The high density of trains, noteworthy scenery and numerous photo locations has made this THE destination for railfans from all over the world! You’ll see why in “Cajon Pass, BNSF Railway’s Cajon Subdivision”.
