A selection of shots taken between 27 and 31 October 2000, my first visit to Tehachapi in over a year. Lots of nice spots and more BNSF helpers on downhill trains, but fewer interesting consists and a real mix of weather and light (the Saturday evening was the end of daylight saving time). Another disturbing trend is way too many UP yellow and BNSF orange and yellow locos By the way, BNSF: the 70's are over!

Pics taken on Fujichrome 100, Ectachrome 200, and a few at the end on Fuji 100 print film. For the first time ever, I used a tripod for almost all shots on the first few days. Highly recommended! All pics copyright Darryl K Bond, but you can use them for non-commercial purposes as long as you give me all the credit and and let me know.
