@Maersk.146 Thanks! GE was coming down from Cajon Pass via Palmdale Cutoff. It was quite surprise to see yard train come this far east from yard, I quess they had very long train to relocate. I was far away when I saw it coming, so I had to run to catch it. It was already backing up to yard when I managed to get close enough to take a picture.

In the background you can see Union Pacific passenger cars taking Palmdale Cutoff out from West Colton. These are cars used on Oct 12-13 with Big Boy excursion train to Barstow and back. In this picture they are leaving from LA area and heading back to Cheyenne possibly?

Maximum asset utilization 😄 Btw, are all intermodal trains always loaded? When loaded container arrives to it's destination then it will be loaded with another cargo for return trip?

BORON LOCAL AND CABOOSE. Boron local is departing on weekday mornings from Barstow and arriving to Boron sometime before noon. On this day (10/2/2019) they arrived at about 1030. After arrival power was disconnected from train and recoupled with the rear of the train, then picked up caboose and reversed to Borax plant. They need to use caboose because of the long reversing move required to enter Borax facility. After all work is done Boron local heads back to Barstow sometime afternoon.

Caboose waiting at Borax spur to be picked up by local:
