Los Angeles to New Orleans

These photos were taken from the back of Amtrak's Sunset Limited on August 15-17, 2008. Three sections of the line were photographed as shown on the map below.

On each page, you will see a description such as this:

b110 East Sierra Blanca Jct

  • b110 is an arbitrary number to keep the photos in order.
  • East indicates the photo is looking in the eastward direction.
  • Sierra Blanca Jct is the name of the interlocking. Intermediate signals are identified by their number rather than a name.

054-113 Beaumont

b001-b072 El Paso
b073-b170 Sierra Blanca
b171-b181 Altuda
