BNSF 5662
Title:  BNSF 5662
Description:  Running about 18 minutes late, Metrolink train 689 (Irvine to Los Angeles) approaches the station in Orange, California, on July 13, 2016. As with most Metrolink trains in 2016, a leased BNSF AC4400CW, 5662, is leading because the carrier is not trusting that the pilots on the Korean-built cab cars is sufficiently braced to allow trains to operate with a cab car leading while in push-mode.

Title:  AMTK 507 - Chatsworth, CA - 1/22/11
Description:  One Amtrak "Pacific Surfliner" trainset per day runs from Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo, avoiding the more common segment from San Diego to L.A. This is also the only trainset not made up of EMD F59PHI diesels and Alstom hi-level passenger cars. On January 22, 2011, Amtrak train #799 threads its way through the Chatsworth Rocks on its way north, with a pair of GE Dash 8-32BWH diesels (507 on the point, and 510 on the rear) and a mix of older Amfleet and Horizon Fleet cars, along with a privately owned car (painted for the Southern Pacific) just behind the lead engine. The train is just about to duck into the first of the two tunnels here, as it departs Los Angeles San Fernando Valley and enters Simi Valley.

BN 1871 - Marysville, WA - 9/18/79
Title:  BN 1871 - Marysville, WA - 9/18/79
Description:  The bell atop the short hood of Burlington Northern GP9 1871 is a dead giveaway that this is a former Northern Pacific engine (NPs 248). The local gendarme doesnt even look up as this single car train (not counting the caboose) passes by on its way south in Marysville, Washington, on September 18, 1979.

BNSF 7711 - mp 58, Cajon Pass, CA - 11/6/10
Title:  BNSF 7711 - mp 58, Cajon Pass, CA - 11/6/10
Description:  Faded GE ES44DCs dominate many of the trains in southern California, as many of the 7700-class units are assigned to trains out of Barstow, including the manifests out of the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and the train the runs to San Diego. The paint looks horrible because, as I understand it, harsh chemicals are used to remove grafitti and those chemicals also damage the factory applied paint jobs. Ironically, not long before this San Diego to Barstow freight appeared, my San Diego-based brother had been commenting on the lack of variety appearing on the BARSDG / SDGBAR trains. The the M-SDGBAR1-05A (San Diego to Barstow) shows up with an old Santa Fe GP60M, still in sharp-looking Warbonnet colors, much to his surprise!
