Remarks & Notes 
With the relatively slow speeds of Tehachapi behind it, Amtrak 14, the San Joaquin Starlight, highballs the original Southern Pacific depot in Bakersfield for a race up the heart of the Central Valley through communities like: Delano, Tulare, Visalia, Fresno, Madera, Merced, Modesto, Manteca (that enough 'M' towns for ya?) before making the turn at Lathrop for the run over Altamont Pass to rejoin its usual coast route.

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!
