Don Janes out West
Don Janes sent me these two photos that I though I should share with you. It appear a downturn in traffic has turned into a surplus of motive power, and guess what happens to them.
The photo above shows a string of stored UP engines, likely well over 100, maybe close to 200. They are stored on an old UP mainline that was a horseshoe curve, likely about two miles long filled with locomotives. This location is about 30 minutes east of Tucson.
The view below is the Sunset Ltd cresting the grade at Mescal, east of Tucson. It was almost dark so focus was a little off, but still an interesting view...enjoy...George Dutka
