Remarks & Notes 
It might not see the bustling amount of freight and passenger traffic that it used to, but the ex-Southern Pacific Coast Line is still as grand as it was back when the famous Daylight passenger trains traversed it when it comes to the scenery. While Amtrak's twice-daily Coast Starlight's and the Los Angeles San Diego San Luis Obispo Rail Corridor Agency's (LOSSAN) many daily Pacific Surfliners ply these rails often, freight traffic has unfortunately dwindled down to two regular freight trains. Pictured here is one of these two, the twice weekly running of the LOF67, as it leans into the curve and catches some of the spray from a crashing wave at Emma Wood State Beach. After waiting for the passage of Amtrak's 11 and 796 at Seacliff, the LOF67 will be back on the move north for the train's final destination of Guadalupe where it will interchange cars with the Santa Maria Valley Railroad. The following day, the same crew will build the return train, LOF66, and depart Guadalupe for the trip back to the train's regular departure point of Gemco located in the San Fernando Valley. Despite other Union Pacific locals that work out of Gemco, Guadalupe and Watsonville, the LOF66/67 are the only regular trains that ply the most coast miles on this famous route.
