Iron Springs, Utah to Port of Long Beach Iron Ore Train On Lineup
Author: BurtNorton

As information,  the first Iron Springs, Utah to Port of Long Beach 180 car unit iron ore train is on the UP lineup and should be out and running shortly if not already.   Keep an eye out for it.   As background, Black Iron, LLC owns and operates the former CML Metals / CML Railroad property.  The mine and railroad is located west of Cedar City, Utah on the leased UP Comstock Subdivision.

Any idea if its UP power from the loadout, or using mine RR power to the UP.  IIRC, prev power for the mine run was SD40's.

Please keep us informed of its progress.

As one who is very familliar with Piers F and G I would love to be able to see this be worked and unloaded.

The power will be whatever UP assigns to the train.  The four SD40-3 CLC locomotives will never leave the shortline on any unit train.

Nooo... What Im asking is are the sd40 mine engines active, or did they use UP power on the mine trackage? 
I wasnt expecting the mine engines to run down the UP.  I was just wondering if they were active on the mine trackage? 
I find that much more interesting than the UP part of the haul.

The previous owner's four locomotives are being used to load the trains and run them down from the mine to Iron Springs, UT.

Just a FYI the Ore Train should already be unloading at Pier S right now. It arrived around 11pm last night.

So the train from Iron Springs Utah leaving today made it to Long Beach last night?

Also, Pier S would mean SA Recycling is the transloader instead of Oxbow on Pier G.

UP 6753 brought the train on the BNSF through Sullivans curve around 14:00 yesterday. 4x2. Still shooting slide film. Shots will have to wait.

Do you know how often this train will be running?  I knew that they were mining iron ore a few years ago but I had not heard anything about it for some time.

Go check out prices of slides on eBay. See what people are willing to pay to get an original slide. Then get back to me. By the way, see what people are paying for a copy of a digital image as well.

Can u take original slide film picture from 1964 today?     I guess I should start selling off all my extras from the 1970's. but who has the time?   The best stuff I have are all the videotapes from the late 70's and 80's.

Did they run it as a 180 car train all the way to the LA Basin, or was the train split in two at Yermo?

The loaded train ran out of Iron Springs with 177 loads as the OUTS1 11. At Yermo the train was split in half, with 90 cars continuing on the OUTS1 11 and the balance moving on the OYRS1 14. The 90 cars from the first half of the train are aleady moving back empty toward Yermo as the OS1YR 14. Another load, the OUTS1 16 is showing to run in a couple days.
