Below are links to pages that contain photos of all the railroad signals along the route of Amtrak's Coast Starlight. They are arbitrarily numbered starting in Los Angeles and continuing to Seattle. Connecting lines are indented.

Map: Amtrak routes, Coast Starlight in Blue

On each page, you will see a description such as this:

043 South CP CO406 Oxnard

  • 043 is an arbitrary number to keep the photos in order.
  • South indicates the photo is looking in the southbound direction.
  • CP CO406 Oxnard is the name of the interlocking. Intermediate signals are identified by their number rather than a name.

Most of the photos were taken in 2002 and 2003. This collection depicts the signals as they were at time the photos were taken.
