Where Are the Trains?

December 17, 2015

Today is one of the nicest days of the year, yet no rail traffic on UP’s Glidden sub. What’s up with that?

It appears that a scheduled maintenance curfew is in effect, pretty much across the entire sub. Check out the ATCSMon display as of 11:30 this morning:


Red and green segments (click to enlarge image) indicate track occupancy and line-ups, respectively. The only active rail in 190 miles is on the mainline at Kirby.

Blue and purple segments indicate track that is out of service. Blue is MOW, purple is parked trains. As you can see, there are 14 blue segments.

So much for my plans of getting out today to capitalize on the beautiful weather…
