ATSF 3806 east at T-2

ATSF GP 40X 3806 leads an eb freight at Tunnel 2 on Tehachapi Pass, CA in Jan. 1987
Wow that is in impressive photo Don!
Standing above the tunnel Eh?

The photo was made from a ridge that is above the track to the north. This is an eastbound train, at least at the time the SP dispatchers labeled it thus (UP calls it a Southbound) heading west due to the 180 degree horseshoe curve at Caliente.
