Stand Back! Here come the Cans! The loaded Bakersfield to Dolores oil cans (BKDOU) with six engines up front and 7 mid train helpers race across the Mojave Desert at Oban (between Mojave and Palmdale). The six on the headend (8271-7496-8269-7805-7821-8256) will take the train all the way to Dolores, but the seven unit manned helper (SSW9282-9225-8308-SSW9286-SSW9296-9336-7332) will drop off at the top of Vincent Hill south of Palmdale.
