Remarks & Notes 
Why do the best things always show up after the sun disappears? In the era just before Santa Fes unsuccessful merger with the SP, and before Superfleet, it was uncommon to encounter matched sets of road power. After a day of photography on Cajon, we were ready to head to dinner when we saw this train descending the pass. One more frame of film had to be burned to capture one-third of the Santa Fes rebuilt FP45s leading an intermodal train at Devore. Note the westbound SP train in the distance at the upper right. Exhaust from the lead power and the helpers is visible.
