We are locked down for a bit more in CA but hoping to be set somewhat free soon. If we can go someplace other than the store, doctor, etc we may consider going to watch trains in Beaumont/Banning area for a bit. It seems like a lot of trains run there during daylight. I know the Sunset Limited does too but close to midnight so not interested in seeing it. Does anyone have an idea of how many trains one might see in say an hour or two along this route in Southern California?
Thanks.

Well, in 90 minutes one freight train passed and one set of a pair of engines that had been parked own the track about 1/4 from where I was. Not much excitement but better than nothing.
