Wonderful photo, Steve! Those red noses jump off the screen due to their being clean and the good use of lighting

A definitive Schmollinger classic. Nice to see it in appear on Railpictures.

This is the kind of shot that Richard Steinheimer was noted for. His photography was featured in "Trains Magazine" Cover stories on espee operations through the difficult parts of California. The first story was about Tehachapi Loop and was so extraordinary, I kept the issue under my pillow, and still have it in a safe place. It is photographers like yourself who are keeping the espee story alive and well. thank you Steve.

Not just a classic Espee photo, a historical change of eras photo with the new SD40T-2's taking over older power on the Pass. New mid-70's tunnel motors bounced SD39's off Tehachapi and ushered in the experimental remote control helper era. Note the run-around train holding the siding in the background - another new SP 8300 series SD40T-2 is seen leading an older generation SD9 Cadillac.
