Four Engines, Four Roads!
Author: lee_uintah

This EB train was heading up Weber canyon (Utah) on February 15, 2017. I caught it first in Uintah at the mouth of Weber Canyon, and then again at Mtn Green. UP, NS, KCS, and CSX units were at the head of the train. Then there were 103 cars, followed by two UP mid-train DPUs, and another 53 cars. Awesome!

That is a really cool video -- and in both senses
of the word (snow of the ground, Feb, in that part
of the country -- brrrr!!). That is a GREAT catch --
4 locomotives, each from a different railroad, and
all facing forward, "elephant-style". And thanks
for counting all the cars, too. Talk about a LONG
train -- 159 cars total! Wow!

Did you know ahead of time what the lash-up was?
Or was it just pure luck? And thanks for finding
a good spot where you could video the entire train
without any vehicles getting in your way. You did
luck out a lot at your second location because no
train came by on that near track -- whew! Was that
also luck, or did you know ahead of time that no
train was going to be on that near track?

Nice video... I'm not trying to be unkind, but i think that talking over the video doesnt really help it at all. Just my opinion.

FWIW, I forgot to say that I appreciated the
verbal commentary. did not detract from the
video at all for me. Everyone is different,
so some will like it and some will not.

Margaret_SP_fan,
It was luck to catch this lash-up of engines. I saw the train come by my house first. I live 1 mile to the west of the first location in the video at the mouth of Weber canyon. So I hopped in my truck, caught a stop-light just right, and managed to catch the train first at the mouth of Weber canyon. (But I had to stop on the freeway edge, something I don't usually do. Lots of traffic.) Then I drove about 5 miles east to the second location, Mountain Green, to video the engine lash-up again. Luckily no WB train came by on the close track to block the view of the EB.

PDT, thanks for being direct and honest. If I know I am going to post a video, I usually do not comment. But on most of the videos I make (for myself), I do talk to help me remember where I am, and when. Thanks for watching.
