California, the Golden State, has approximately 250,000 square miles, of which 8,446 are rail miles. Its terrain is composed of mountains, valleys, and wide-open farming land. The rails crisscross this fertile land, and the tonnage that moves across it mounts into the millions. From sand and gravel to high-priced electronic parts and machinery, loads move East and West, North and South, twenty-four hours a day, three hundred and sixty-five days a year.
The seventies brought new locomotive designs, car sizes and colorful paint schemes. The latter were applied to freight cars that represented the many shortlines in California. The continued use of pooled locomotives of Midwestern and Eastern railroads also added variety.
Golden State Rails is a collection of all of the above. It is the result of long hours at home and on the road. My patience was rewarded by that solitary train of the day or by an unusual consist of motive power. Railfan's luck? Maybe.
