A RECENT DAY AT CAJON PASS SUMMIT

I have been photographing trains in the Cajon Pass since about 1960. I have observed many changes to the right-of-way over the years and recently I returned to Summit Station area for an update. While there, I photographed a BNSF train at Summit, as it crested the summit of the pass, with the idea of showing just how steep the grade is. The results of this effort are presented below. I curious to know if I succeeded. Please let me know in the comment section.
