Santa Fe Railway freight train symbol 901 at Caliente, CA

Santa Fe Railway freight train symbol 901 at Caliente, CA

Train 901 climbs out of Caliente on November 2, 1976. One the headend are engines 5688, 8711, 5910, plus another SD45. As the train approached me I could hear rumbling behind me. I turned as the lead units passed and got the grab shot below that I have never been able to repeat. Either the trains didn't have helpers or the helpers were at the wrong place in the train for the shot to work. You will see this train again at the Loop. Pushing on the caboose are two GP-35s.
