Review of Tehachapi 88

 4.8 of 5 (4)
3 1/2 hour . . .Two-Disc Special

Rare, never-before-seen footage photographed in 1988 over Tehachapi Pass between Bakersfield and Mojave, California.

Tehachapi...a Railfan's Paradise! Owned by the SOUTHERN PACIFIC with trackage rights by the ATCHISON TOPEKA & SANTA FE. Southern Pacific's unit oil tank train, known as the "Oil Can" is featured in many scenes. The red and yellow SF and SP paint are still seen on Tehachapi. Motive power includes the GP60, C30-7, SD45, GP50 and many others. The Caboose was fast disappearing from America's railroads, but in 1988 they were still a common sight on Tehachapi trains. So return now...for ten glorious days...to this memorable location and time in railroad history.
