Is UP loading Tesla's AND Honda's at Milpitas?
Author: bradleymckay

A couple people not on TO have mentioned UP moving empty tri-levels to Milpitas (north of San Jose) for loading imported Honda automobiles. That's surprising since I thought BNSF was doing that in Richmond. Anybody know the story? TY.

I ahd the same question because the V-CLORIC runs several times a week. I've been wondering about the V train out of BNSF
Birmingham which makes no sense becasue the auto plants are all a hundred miles away. Now I see a V train running out of TUP
(Tupelo) which would hanlde the Toyota traffic.

Tesla is building a huge plant in Austin and nowhere near any rail acess.  A lot of missed revenue.

To answer the question, yes UP is loading Tesla's at Milpitas not sure about Honda.

Considering that UP handles mostly all of the Toyota business, I'd say the Toyota traffic out of tupelo is interchanged to UP in Memphis to be forwarded to California

Dunno, saw a V-TUP train on BNSF, didn't look very UP to me.

Hi all,

I have also spotted Hondas in addition to Tesla's at the Milpitas facility.
