Surprise Catch of the Day!
Title:  Surprise Catch of the Day!
Description:  It seems every winter or spring, at least once a year; BNSF's route from Southern California to Northern California and up to Oregon and Washington; is knocked out of service. To keep the traffic flowing, BNSF sends their trains "the long way around" via the Union Pacific, up through Nevada, Utah, Idaho, then back into Oregon. On my way home from school, I spotted an eastbound detoured BNSF train in the distance. I rushed up to "The Cut" in Erda, Utah. The "Faux-bonnet" and the H1 paint schemes trailing behind the lead engine were a cool sight to see so deep in Union Pacific territory.

Resting on the Mainline
Title:  Resting on the Mainline
Description:  Due to floods in northern Nevada, the Union Pacific had to reroute a large amount of trains over the Shaffter Subdivision (which itself was crippled by some flood damage too). Due to this traffic jam, the UP began to stack trains out on the Lynndyl Subdivision east of Garfield and west of Salt Lake to prepare them to travel down the Shaffter in conjunction "fleeting" together on the crippled line. I found one such train, left peacefully on one of the mainline tracks; while a flooded field reflected the blue sky.

Westbound Stacks and Pigs at Erda
Title:  Westbound Stacks and Pigs at Erda
Description:  I was traveling between Salt Lake City and Tooele; when I caught this stack train (ISCLB-27) running through Garfield, Utah. I followed it down to Erda, where I was able to catch it highballing pass the Fassio Eggs feed silo. UP 8074 is on point, with three SD70M units (UP 4060, UP 5032, and UP 4712). It seemed like the train was at full track speed, all the way from Garfield down through Erda.

Utah Railway Coal Train
Title:  Utah Railway Coal Train
Description:  A Utah Railway coal empty with UP units on the lead moves downgrade at Kyune. This train will be loaded at the Savage load out later in the day. This was the last Utah Railway coal train scheduled to run before Utah Railways coal contract expired. Apparently Utah only has two coal trains scheduled in January to meet some of the contracts tonnage requirements; and then they will exit the coal hauling business for the foresee-able future.

Description:  Railfan Matt Paulson crouches down to frame a shot of the approaching MWCNP.

Family Photo of Construction of the Nevada California & Oregon Railway
Title:  Family Photo of Construction of the Nevada California & Oregon Railway
Description:  (Date Approximate) This photo from my grandmothers family history collection; shows what looks like a construction train on the Nevada California & Oregon line. Help via Facebook on the Southern Pacific and Western Pacific fan groups suggests the location is Wendel California. My ancestors who worked on railroads were Martin David Rice, and his son Hubil Lumis Rice. It is possible they are both in this photo.
