And now...More UP/BNSF action near Cheyenne

Sunday, November 24, 2013


We are moving to Cheyenne, WY next month and I am hopeful to merge ARR with this blog and continue to post the wonderful Alaska Railroad pictures. Onto Union Pacific and BNSF action in Wyoming, Nebraska and Colorado.

Cheyenne is a great mainline UP spot and hope to get some awesome pictures. Bucket list, Bailey Yard.

Escondido today

As you can see, this area hasn't changed much from the old says. It's still a dead end line from the turnout at Oceanside to Escondido. The first photo is where the line ends, behind the fuel dealer. Lots of switching with the feed supply. I drew a track plan for this branch a few years ago:

Joe Fugate's Siskiyou Lines 2007

Bruce Petty's Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley

Mark Lestico's N UP Cascade Division 2010

Charlie Comstock's Bear Creek and South Jackson 2010

Mike Danneman's D&RGW N 5x7 layout
