Steam Across Tehachapi - 1996

by Jesse Koski


Well, I didn't say that a steam locomotive was on the tracks crossing over the Tehachapi Loop.:-)

While watching trains on 'the loop' in early Oct. 1996, someone yelled "Look, a steam locomotive
over on the Highway". Yup, thar she be, riding on a large truck and trailer. The engine is in front
while the tender is right behind. While everyone was gawking at this unusual sight, I did manage
to get a shot off. This is the only photograph to exist. I think someone mentioned that it was being
moved to Portola. But I'm not sure. If you know, what, from where and where to,
e-mail P&WRR and we will put a brief discription here.
