Southern Pacific Railroad westbound freight train at Tehachapi, CA

Southern Pacific Railroad westbound freight train at Tehachapi, CA Southern Pacific Railroad engine 5321 at Tehachapi, CA

The rays of the setting sun reflect off the windshield of the 5321 as Extra 9315 West rolls into Tehachapi. The helper crew will grab a bit to eat before going back down the hill for their next assignment. They know it is going to be awhile before they get back to Bakersfield. I'm guessing that this was in 1974 or later as engine 9315 was delivered to the SP in January 1974.
