Remarks & Notes 
With it's journey over Tehachapi almost complete, Amtrak 14 leans into the curve at Sandcut as it climbs onto the floor of the San Joaquin Valley while passing a row of original railroad code lines poles still standing despite their age. Today's detour of 11 and 14 via the Central Valley and Tehachapi comes following a 36-hour work window for Union Pacific maintenance of way crews as they speed to replace bridge spans just north of Ventura.

What California is known for. Fires, droughts, weed, and people waving rainbow flags. Yah. Great place alright. At least the trains are nice.

The GE Genesis series are well known for being Amtrak's locomotive. With confirmation of retirement from Amtrak themselves, their time is limited. Now is your chance to catch them before the chargers arrive!
