Two Tier IV ACe's on Cajon Today
Author: z-trains

Got a heads up through the grapevine about a pair of SD70ACeT4's heading up two separate southbounds, a Z-BRLC with UP 3063 on the point, and an M-PWWC with UP 3089 on the point. There were quite a few fans out today and with good reason - my dad and I got a few shots of both trains.

-The southbound Z-BRLC heads through Canyon siding as it passes by a set of work equipment and in the distance, a few railfans. There were quite a few of us out for these trains.
-Same train in Rialto. I brought the wrong lens on accident for this spot so zoomed in it is.
-Same shot but wider

-The M-PWWC at Hiland.
-The 3089 stopped midway through Canyon siding for about an hour while waiting for a northbound manifest to come upgrade. Here it is passing under Mike and Ike.
-The M-PWWC proceeding southward.

Overall a pretty good afternoon. Thanks for looking.

Great scens.  Hope to see more of the T4's.   New power has been far and few between for a good six years now.

Still trying to find those railfans in picture #1. Did they get cropped out?

Great shots!  I love those Tier 4 units.  Does anybody know when BNSF is going to get the 10 SD70ACeP4-Tier4 that they ordered from Progress?

They aren’t getting them...Production slots apparently retained and will become EMDX/PRLX 7243-7252. Not sure if they will be P4s.

Like the perspective in #3; different from the typical.  Nothing wrong with the shot or the focal length!

Has U.P. pulled all of their ACe-T4's out of storage?

No. A bunch still in storage but they come out as older power Is stored due to major defects.

And on the UP they do it use “-“ in train symbols.

So is the BRLC back to being a Z train, or is it still the IBRLC?
