That is getting to be the "normal " size for UP passing tracks.

How much of the Rock Island 112lb rail welded by Southern Pacific is still in use on the line today?

From what I saw 2 years ago was 136lb rail being the standard from Tucumcari to Dwight KS.  UP put a lot of work into that line and I believe its all CTC now too.  Dan
