SP Mojave Flyer at Mojave, CA

Right after the Santa Fe train went by, the Mojave Flyer (Extra 9331 East) slows and enters the yard. From 1884 to 1889 borax was a major part of Mojave's history. The famous 20-Mule Team Wagons hauled borax from the mines in Death Valley to the railroad in Mojave. A monument on Sierra Highway in front of the Kentucky Fried Chicken honors the spot where the wagons were unloaded. Disk 48
