Idaho Amtrak

This is UP's snow train, based in Pocatello. When the roads are too slick to use regular crew vehicles, UP hitches up a loco to this rig and uses it to exchange crews with trains that have gone dead out on the line. It's a Metra car (note the graffiti with a reefer attached to supply power for heating and lighting. It looks more like a beater bus to me. Since we have no true Amtrak service in southern Idaho, the name "Idaho Amtrack" somehow seemed appropriate.
