Climb aboard as we take an exciting 70-mile trip over BNSF's Cajon Subdivision from Devore to Barstow. You'll have the best seat in the house! We've placed our camera at the very front of the lead unit on BNSF's hottest Z train. The four GE Dash 9 44CWs on our train provide 17,600 horsepower for the battle to the summit of Cajon Pass!
We'll depart Devore and then just east of Keenbrook we'll cross over onto the original line to Summit, which is preferred for most westbound traffic. It's shorter and steeper but our train has enough horsepower to conquer the 3 percent grade. Once past Summit, our train eases downgrade, clears the Upper Narrows and the scenic Lower Narrows, then makes good time streaking across the desert floor to Barstow. Along the way you'll meet westbound hotshots, spot third main track construction and signal installations, and get a totally unique perspective of the famous hotspots that make Cajon such a popular railfanning destination. Welcome aboard Volume 2 you're "At the Throttle!"
