UP Unit Honoring "Nice Folks in a Difficult Situation" on Donner
Author: BoilingMan

I had never seen UP 1111 until last week- and now I've seen it 3 or 4 times since!  Here it is as the second unit of a WB power move yesterday.  It was the trailing unit of the same type move just the day before, so I guess it's caught up in a DPU rotation, bouncing back and forth between Roseville and Sparks (Reno).
This location was the site of CPRR Tunnel 2, a mile or so East of Emigrant Gap, CA.  Way back then these guys would have been underground right here.
