Flood and Erosion

Flood and Erosion

UP 2445 leads a WB grain near Virgilia. On Valentine's Day 1986, the Feather River experienced record-level flooding. It took weeks and months to restore sections of rr and highway. What this photo doesn't illustrate is a two mile zone of one lane highway and an 6AM-4PM MoW work window for UP.
UP C30-7 2445 was sold to Boise Locomotive Co., Boise, Idaho, on 30 September 1999; 2445 is now UP SD60M
