Brand-New UP SD70ACE T-4 on Amtrak

December 27, 2017

It hasn’t happened around the Houston area yet, but the Southern California crowd got to experience UP 3012 leading Amtrak #11 into Burbank, CA early this year. The freight unit was pinch-hitting for the lead P42 account a grade crossing incident that occurred in the Dunsmuir area. There’s an aviation bonus at the end of the video.

Lastly, to the extent you wonder why I don’t post more often here, I have been assimilated into the Facebook Borg. I do a lot of quick-hit type posts at the Railspot Group on Facebook.

    Not a big fan of Facebook. Always look forward to you posts on this site.

      I hear you. I’m not either. I use FB only for railfan business. Three main reasons: easier to post there, much more phone-friendly, and so many railfans are on FB, it’s become a good “heads-up’ tool. I finally caved in when the Railspot group on Yahoo became a ghost town.

      Guess I too will have to get out my plastic gloves I wear for the few times I do head on over to Facebook.

        As the kids say: LOL!
        By a small margin, I like trains / communicating with like-minded fans more than I dislike Facebook. It’s like 55-45.
