Remarks & Notes 
The 1979 Pacific Railroad Society "Mountain Outin" passenger special, with Amtrak SDP40F 518 and 517, is rolling westbound towards Bakersfield through Cable. I am taking this photo from the open baggage compartment door next to the vestibule. We were surprised the conductor never told us to close the baggage doors, and we never complained about it. A great way to view Tehachapi Pass freight train action and the scenery.
