Remarks & Notes 
It has often been said of Tehachapi that it resembles a 1:1 scale model railroad, so in a scene that one might only expect to find on a model railroad we are reminded that this is 1:1 scale mountain railroading at its finest. With three layers of train in view while descending the famous Tehachapi Loop at Walong, a westbound BNSF grain train is 'tunnel to tunnel' with the train's mid dupes passing over the head end power.
