Looks like reports were wrong. This video shows 156 as the third of three locks.

And look at those Domes!

More elsewhere on the Pacific Railroad Society Diamond Jubilee Special over Tehachapi, once I get some uploading issues resolved. That train was a great weekend chase.

Cool vid, Singwith/Snuffy, and I recognize the yard and shop areas near Union Station, but where were those road shots, e.g. the grade crossings? No doubt east of downtown L.A., but where?

Short of that I have what might be called unreasonable facsimiles, but let's wait and see!

Would this indicate it will be on the 2 or the 22?

I might be able to get a picture or video if it's on the 2 and I can get up and drive a little in the middle of the night. :giggle:

If it's on the 22, I'll have to get up and take a video of it.
