Long Yellow Line

A long yellow line of old UP power on what appears to be a dead track at the eastern entrance to the Davidson Yard in Fort Worth, TX. Most of the over 40 engines (not counting the three yard power locomotives on the right) are GP40-2s or GP40-8Ws. Here is a roster of the number boards I could make out: UP 3034 GP40-2, UP 9250 C40-8W, UP 9113 C40-8W, UP 1422 GP40-2, UP 9152 C40-8W. The three yard engines are: LLX 2201 GP38, UP 3713 GP40-2, and UPY 847 GP 38-2.
Wow... 43 engines!!! and there's more!
I can see it's a bussy yard...

what kind of boxcars are the white ones at the bottom left???
wow Nice shot David

Mikeknuckley: In response to your question the white boxcars are reefers owned by the CryoTrans Corporation, each car is unique becuase it has a different name on it, for example CYRX 3191 is named after South Bend, IN
Fantastic picture! Never seen a picture of that many engines on one track!
Definitely a unique and great shot. Thanks for showing me something I haven't even come close to seeing before.
