    Roseville to Warm Springs Manifest (MRVWS)

    Looking more like the photo was taken in Oregon or Washington states, the daily MRVWS on the UP Martinez Sub accelerates in Run-8 through Rodeo (pronounced ROW-DAY-OH), California on a gloomy overcast day. This photo was taken from an overpass which conveniently had a hole in the chainlink fence.

    Westbound Illuminating the Benicia Bridge

    Highlighted by a westbound UP Z-Train making it's way to Oakland. This train must've been close to 2 miles long as it took nearly 5 minutes to pass! This is the daily ZNPOA. Camera Settings: 70mm (crop sensor) f/4.5 ISO 100 30 sec exposure Remote shutter release

    Meals for Train Crews

    How do train crews get time to eat when on duty? Are they allowed to go to the nearest fast food joint by the tracks if time allows? I recently heard a UP freight in a siding waiting for MoW to clear up and they asked if they had time to get food. Thanks for your input! Alex Wilson Castro...
