West Coast Benchin' 2019-2020

Recommended Posts

I've been benching for years, when I go check out the layups I take pics but I don't really do anything with the flicks. Since Instagram is limiting in the image quality and facebook is dead to me, I decided to do my part to get this forum back into the swing of things. I just got a new camera so I have energy to get out there and check shit out. It will start with the fresh bench but eventually it will go to the archives. I have about 5+ years of bench waiting. Enjoy!

Yeah hopefully it lives longer. That line had a really old Solo Artist but I it was 99% gone and could only be really noticed up close and in person. Here's a small fresh bench from saturday.

Fresh bench from monday. Apologies if the images are a bit dark and off center. In order to keep myself from getting over worked I posted them almost directly from the camera. I do resize a bit and lighted a few of them.

Yeah man, no doubt. More to come I got a lot of rails I can explore, plus I'm looking for my external that's got flicks from 2014-2016. I'll throw in some classic, circa 2001-2003 benching eventually.

This overcast weather is miserable for benching and not much quality out there today but anyway here is a fresh set from today. Imagine all those pumpkin orange engines used to be warbonnets, I miss that paint scheme. At least the blue bonnets are still roaming around.

So here is a neat benching setup. I went to the Cajon Pass (look it up on youtube if you don't know) on a monday afternoon to see what was rolling north. And it was busy! Trains from both the BNSF and UP heading north. A few coming down but it was like a train every 15 minutes. So I took a hike and brought out my camera with two lenses, one a zoom and another a telephoto lens. I think this place is unique in that the  landscape makes all these massive machines looks tiny in comparison. There was a lot of graffiti but honestly 97% was uninspiring. These are some of the better shots (but not by much as I was in the shadows). Feel free to share the graff pics but the foamer pics please keep in here.
