MP 72 - BNSF Spokane Sub.
I was wondering what the Class I's would be doing in the form of maintainence.

I was wondering if any BNSF and/or UP rails would chime in on 2011 Major MOW windows for the Seattle, Fallbridge, Stampede, Bellingham, Lakeside & Scenic Subs for the BNSF... What about the Brooklyn, Portland, LaGrande & Cascade Subs for the UP?? :)

I'm in the Eugene area and have Wednesday free - any projects that would prevent trains from running during daylight on 2/9/11 in any direction?

If the UP is shut down north and south, any idea on the CORP or whatever line that runs between Eugene and Salem?
