Hi:  I'm new here.  Visiting California in a couple weeks from Nova Scotia, Canada.  I'd like to get some photos and videos at the Tehachapi Pass.  Where is a good location (or the best location) to do this?  Is there a train schedule available for this area?  Can't wait  Thanks!!

No schedule i am aware of - it is a freight line and freights geerally don't run to schedules pre-arranged and the same every day. Much of the rail line though the pass has roads close by and roughly parallel, including a grid around the area of the famous Tehachapi Loop. Highway 58 (Barstow-Bakersfield Highway) is prominent in that regard. I would suggest a good highway map of the area and resort to Google maps and Google Earth will be helpful in planning your trip over Tehachapi Pass.

I've been there and back.  Stopped at various locations along the highway.  Got lots of pics and video.  Visited Keene, Caliente, Mojave, Warren...and the LOOP!!!!  Saw a UP and a BNSF passing through the loop.  Great!!!!  Hope to return someday!  Thanks!
