A BNSF double-stack is on main 1 in Big Cut just before Summit on Cajon Pass. This is the new track that was added by the BNSF during 2007 and 2008. Notice that the BNSF is still using the "left-hand" rule still after the new main was added. Main 3 (The South Track) is still used mainly for downhill trains and main 2 (The former North Track) is also used mainly for downhill trains. The new track now called main 1 (The new North Track) which parallels main 2 the entire way down to Cajon Station, is now used mainly for the uphill trains. Interesting, huh?
