Going to Tehachapi, what would the frequency of trains be like in this area?

also visiting Sulivans Curve Hill 582 SanBernadeno, Cajon etc...

Are their trains running regualrily or is it getting hit and miss, and are the mainlines still getting some trains ie UP and BNSF.

Many thanks, cheers
Don't be worried; you'll see them! I would assume the frequency would be close to the same minus whatever trains have been annulled for now.

With the busiest months for railroads coming up (October to early Dec.), traffic is expected to rise. This may not mean more trains but longer ones and possibly some extra sections. (Not sure if you guys get those out west.)

All in all, don't let the media scare you off thinking that everything is abandoned and the mainlines only see a train every 2 hours. It's not true.
