Seriously, between LV and Cedar City? How about between LV and Lund? If that's the derailment area
how does it affect Cedar City? Embrace PSR and burn all the route maps!! Here's LA/LB and there's the
Global Net, that's all we need!

Out

The would explain the reroutes that are heading towards Roseville now.

ZLADV is on Tehachapi. An empty grainer also is out there somewhere too. Plus a Utah bound coal is heading up the Palmdale Cutoff towards Tehachapi.

Looking the other direction there is a ISCLB coming into Sparks now and at least a couple more detours planned for at this point.

Not everybody needs to know the exact location of the derailment. All the customer needs to know is that there will be a delay due to a derailment.
So relax a little and maybe consider going to decaf.

Best I can figure it was the Victorville Coal train that hit the ditch (CSKVV). I'm glad no one was hurt.
