What happened to the way freight?

The days of the bobbin' along way freight dropping off cars at a bunch of industries, bringing other cars to the next division point or branch for further destinations. Now it's inter modal, units and colorful streaks of containers dashing across the country.

At lease UP Fresno is having fun with their Fresno-Madera local. They have a former SP Bay Window Caboose they painted UP colors and labeled The Madera Flyer. Check it out direct from Fresno, CA
