Remarks & Notes 
It's always exciting to find that a train is running on the Trona Railway, as it generally means there'll be several opportunities to see (and hear) some battle-scarred old SD40s giving it their all on a steeply graded route with numerous aesthetically unique vantage points. Despite being dwarfed by the scenery of the Searles Valley, an ex-Southern Pacific 'tunnel motor' still manages to look rugged and purposeful as it leads its train onto 'the ramp', just a few miles into its tough climb up to the yard at Searles.
