Salt Lake Garfield and Western Railroad Visit
Author: trainman7774

Hello All,        
         
I took another trip out west in 2018. 

On the moring of September 17, 2018 I followed the Salt Lake Garfield and Western Railroad in Salt Lake City Utah. The first crew left the yard around 8 am and headed off to the industrial park. The second crew left about 15 minutes later heading over to switch out some tank cars. Here are the photos from my visit.  

1. Salt Lake Garfield and Western DS 10 heads towards the industrial park service its customers in Salt Lake City Utah

2. SLGW DS 10 continues towards the industrial park to service its customers in Salt Lake City Utah

3. SLGW DS 10 crosses Jimmy Doolittle Road in Salt Lake City Utah while switching a customer

I hope everyone enjoys the photos.

Great series Chris. I’ve seen them out and about a few times, it need to follow them around one of these days.
