Remarks & Notes 
Laboring up the eastern slope of the Tehachapi grade Union Pacific's westbound MWCFR approaches the 'three amigos' searchlight installation at Warren. Strategically placed to serve the CTC ruled main track 1 and ABS (direction of traffic) controlled main track 2, MP 374 was the only location on the mountain where three individual searchlight signals stood guard side-by-side. Today the searchlights, code-lines, ABS, and even the MWCFR itself are only happy memories.
