BNSF's Mojave sub runs from Barstow to Bakersfield, California, crossing the Mojave Desert and the Tehachapi Mountains in the process. From Mojave to Bakersfield, BNSF uses trackage rights on the UP (former SP). Both BN/SF and UP/SP mergers are in full swing, and the line is a riot of coloful locomotives, the mountains are wearing spring green and traffic is heavy, we even had a surprise visit from the 6936, making for some awesome railfanning. If you can't visit the Tehachapi's in spring, this tape is the next best thing. All the famous locations and then some. Taped in April, 1999.
