Right on the heals of the eastbound SP train was a Santa Fe train lead by engine 8799. The new freeway bridges over the tracks right at the Tehachapi summit. The SP engines are sitting what once was the west leg of the wye at Summit for turning helpers. The last time I remember it being used was in 1967. I think the wye was torn out just after that.
