Thanks! I saw 10 trains in 1 hour and 15 minutes, the action was literally nonstop. Definitely a great location to sit back and enjoy the never-ending parade. :cool:

Are all three of the tracks in the first photo mainline tracks? I once read that UP was spacing the tracks very far apart on double and triple track mainlines to ease maintenance operations.
