ACe with stacks
Title:  ACe with stacks
Description:  UP stacks head east at MP 21.10 on the Los Angeles Sub. Note the wires coming out of the signal box have been cut. This train was actually slowing for a stop at the Jack in the Box on Fullerton. Heck, they do serve breakfast 24 hours a day. According to the radio chatter, this train would end up swapping crews two more times before reaching Colton about five hours later. SD70ACe #8536 was delivered to the UP June of 2007.

Crossing the Santa Ana River
Title:  Crossing the Santa Ana River
Description:  Union Pacific statcks cross the Santa Ana River on the BNSF bridge as they move towards Colton Crossing. This multi-span girder bridge is a mishmash of girder styles, I'm assuming due it being upgraded at some point? This train had already crossed the Santa Ana River on the UP's magnificent arch bridge in Riverside. Prior to that, I'd seen it in Rowland Heights. Took it around five hours to go 36 miles. From radio chatter, I understood that it was re-crewed twice.
