Several stations along the line are featured, including (in geographic, westbound order) Monolith, Tehachapi, Marcel, Walong (Tehachapi Loop), Woodford, Keene, Bealville, Caliente, and Bakersfield. Atchison, Topeka, and Sante Fe (ATSF) and SP power dominate, but guest power includes the Denver and Rio Grande Western (D&RGW) and the Union Pacific (UP). Leased power also appears, including a rare Electro-Motive Division (EMD) demonstrator run.
