Remarks & Notes 
Getting your Kicks on Route 66...Nothing scream southwestern railroading like Route 66 and the Santa Fe. Majority of Route 66 follows the former Santa Fe Transcon from Los Angeles to Chicago. Crossing the eastern Mojave Desert is where you truly see the connection of these two iconic forms of transportation. In the lonesome town of Amboy, CA, Route 66 parallels the 70 MPH tracks of the BNSF Needles Subdivision. Here, the classic Route 66 signs are painted on the highway. In the background, one of the one-hundred trains in a 24 hour period races across the harsh desert landscaped. With three pumpkin colored BNSF locomotives on the point, they have no problem tackling the grade of Ash Hill with their mile-long cargo of FedEx mail.
