Santa Fe Railway freight train symbol 589 at Walong, CA

Train 589 is rolling out of Tunnel 10 at Walong, CA on June 8, 1987. It has engines 3807, 5258, 5115, and 3846. While I was getting this picture, my wife was looking through the binoculars watching a pair of woodpeckers dive bomb a snake in a tree in the middle of the loop. The snake finally gave up and fell out of the tree. Look where you step when railfanning in the Tehachapi Mountains. Train 589 originated near Houston and mainly handled TOFC traffic for Fresno, Modesto, Stockton and Richmond. However it often would fill out the train with autos and manifest traffic. Disk 45
