Remarks & Notes 
When we saw SP 9177 leading three Milwaukee Road SD40-2s on a train out of Taylor Yard in Los Angeles, we knew we had to chase it all the way to West Colton. Soon after arriving in West Colton, the power was cut off the train and put on another train at Pepper Street. Much to our delight, the train then headed up the Palmdale Cutoff over Cajon Pass towards Bakersfield. So the chase was on again, and here the train has just exited out of Sullivan's Curve and is headed towards Highway 138 in Cajon Pass.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
