UP Coal Train at Gilluly, Utah
Author: jdln

A Skyline to Trona Coal train descends from Soldier Summit at Gilluly, Utah at sunset on March 11. 
No audio - I need to figure out a way to record the sounds of the train without getting too much highway noise.

Great video.  I was really hoping you were going to fly right under the bridge with the train.  I'm sure that is illegal though.

Thanks, everybody. I'm looking forward to making more videos like this.
At Trona, California there is a large soda ash processing plant where they convert trona, a mineral they mine from the dry lake bed, into soda ash, which is used in the manufacturing all kinds of stuff like glass, chemicals, paper, detergents, and textiles. I'm not sure how the coal is used, I assume they have some big kilns to remove water from the minerals like they would at a cement plant.
