Hey all!


Just found this post on TrainOrders:,2501136


Why is the NWP getting so much motive power when theres only 3 trains a week? If we were up to northern healdsburg I could see 1922 and 2009 lashed up together to haul, but three?

Whats your thoughts and takes on this?

Would be cool to see this loco in scarlet gray..

BUGX 7632, the ex-Cotton Belt GP40-2 that's been at Mare Island for some time, has been inspected by UP Mechanical and OK'ed for movement. It's currently waybilled back to its owner's main location in Turlock. Not sure when it'll actually move, however.

I thought the GP40 was intended for SF Belt RR?
