A magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck the Mojave Desert northwest of Twentynine Palms early Saturday, knocking an Amtrak passenger train off its tracks and damaging two highway bridges, but otherwise causing remarkably little harm and no deaths. Four people on Amtrak's Southwest Chief from Chicago to Los Angeles were injured, none seriously, when the temblor--the fourth strongest in Southern California this century--rocked the region at 2:46 a.m.

During the late 1800s and early 1900s this old mining and railroad town on what is now Interstate 40 was one of the wildest places in the Mojave Desert. Today it's one of the quietist. In the old days, booze flowed like water. A dozen saloons and a couple of bordellos lined its dusty streets. Now the nearest place you can buy a beer or any other alcoholic beverage is in Newberry Springs, 35 miles to the west, or in Needles, 100 miles to the east.
