Cajon Pass Freight Trains

Depending on the load, it takes 5 large 100 ton engines to pull a train with 100 cars up this 2.2 percent Cajon Pass grade. The train is over a mile long and weighs thousands of tons! This area is along the San Andreas Fault. One track has a section with a 3 percent grade which is the limit for long freight trains.
