Emerald Pass redo.

Due to my old Emerald Pass route not having cars on the roads, I am making a Bigger, Better redo! This route will model both Cajon Pass and Tehachapi pass. I will put as much real as I can.I will model: Victorville, Maybe Dagget, Area between Barstow and Boron, Boron, Monolith, and Maybe the area between Caliente(Where the loop is) and Bakersfield. The rest of it will be fictional, but close to prototype.

Here are some pics. of where I am right now:

Not going to do the landscaping until I get the act together.
BNSF Mixed freight comes through in the boring Cajon Deserts

Where the tracks do a mini-split before they actually split. Can you see another crossing gate in the distance? That is the other track! Yes, the ATLS(Advanced Traffic Light System) traffic signals are synchronized!
A "No right turn" signal that lights up whenever a train comes through.

There will be a continued version due to me reaching my picture limit.
