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. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
