Description: Cajon Pass is the entrance to the West Coast through the San Bernardino Mountains for BNSF and UP
trains from the east on double and triple track with helper and distributed power operations. The whole area has very
scenic and multiple common railfan sites. Traffic is generally heavier, later in the week. I/We are requesting anyone with
first-hand experience of railfanning Cajon to help us out on this article.
Approximate # trains per 24 hours: 80 – 90 including Amtrak’s Sunset Limited
Photo opportunities: All over, nothing but photo ops. In fact that’s the major reason to railfan here.
