Just caught the tail end of this manifest train as it rounds a curve headed toward Tehachapi. Not my first time catching this unit. I caught BNSF 5235 in 2010 while on another bike trip near more)
An eastbound BNSF "Directors Special" was crossing Lake Pend Oreille at Sandpoint, ID on Aug. 10, 2002.

Nothing but beautiful scenery along the Needles Sub in this part of California.
