Cajon Pass Rails

Railroading and the Cajon Pass have been synonymous since Fred T. Perris, Chief Engineer of the California Southern Railroad (CSRR), surveyed the first route through the pass in 1883. The first line, between San Bernardino and Barstow, was completed on November 9, 1885. It has fascinated railfans ever since.

I became interested in the Cajon Pass in 1981 when I was invited to accompany my friend, and noted railroad photographer, Robert L. Kern, on a shooting session. I have been going back, when time permits, ever since.
