A Distant Signal




Barstow, CA



2002, Judd Spittler

An afternoon sun highlights the hump and departure yards at the BNSF facility in Barstow.  The hill to the east of the yard provides at least two excellent perspectives on the yard.  A lower plateau behind a car dealership allowed this shot.  Another excellent view can be found on the top of the hill.  Of interest in this shot is a line of retired locomotives awaiting their final fate.
