UP 2563 Run 8 Railroading
Author: spsniper

UP 2563 throttles up to run 8, for the tough 2.2% climb up and out of Mojave, CA in the late winter sun!

I stayed at that Motel 6 last year. I plan to stay there again.
Some of the rooms on the west side of that hotel. Has great views of the tracks.
But for some reason, those rooms dont sell out. I wonder why?

Love the picture, looks like you've got the decimal point in the wrong place on the grade!

Looks like a 40 percent grade.  Neat view.
