Well I've been without internet for over 7 months, doing little on mobile other than checking the forums for others contributions and very minimal railfanning for the last 4 months due to the summer heat and overtime at work.  
 
While there will be more contributions going forward, for today we have a BNSF unit coil steel train on the approach to tackling Tehachapi, departing the Bakersfield yard southbound.
6937, 6530, and 8350 on the head end  
5472 and 7448 on the rear

Unit grain train making the loop at Tehachapi. The four engines in the background are the lead units taking the train north toward Bakersfield about to go through the tunnel under the rest of the train including the 3 mid train helpers in the foreground. I'd always missed the western road heritage unit grain trains from back in my days of working over the road in Texas, and plains states, here in the central valley I get a good mix of unit grain train action for the numerous large mills, most with their own in plant power.

The same train as the pic above, the tunnel is visible to the right with the train still working its way through.

A hotshot intermodal and another southbound freight awaiting a re-crew bracket a set of light power awaiting a signal at the Calwa interlocking. This location is on the south end of the BNSF Fresno (Calwa) yard where the single track Union Pacific mainline through the central valley crosses over the double track BNSF mainline, with numerous Amtrak moves and a steady stream of freight to keep railfanning here very interesting.

The last few weekends I've found some time to sit trackside at the Calwa interlocking, where UP crosses the BNSF on the south end of BNSF's Fresno "Calwa" yard. On these trips I've taken minimal pictures and focused more on train logs, something I was introduced to by a good friend a few years back. I'd add in the engine numbers, but most trains have 4 to 7 engines on them, gets messy for this format.
