About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

      Yes. I think they put the passenger train in just to take the corportate types for a ride through the Tehachapi Loop. The last car is called a Geometry car. it checks the track through some kind of infra-red/x-ray type machine and can tell if there are spots that need to be replaced. I don’t know all of the ins and outs of it, but had a good friend years ago who operated one. I think he’s probably retired by now but I still see him on Facebook now and then.
