UP Restarted Double Tracking in AZ
Author: mococomike

UP has started double tracking the last few stretches of single track on the Sunset Route across AZ. UP has graded between Theba and Peidra sidings to connect the two. UP has set up a large contruction base near Theba. They look to be building new crossovers at Theba then working out from this location in both directions. The line is fully surveyed and marked for the construction work.

Is there any construction activity taking place east of Gila Bend up the hill towards Shawmut?

It is surveyed and tagged, They made mega  a siding out of Bosque but that is it so far.

I suspect the double tracking is to make it easier to justify the operation of 10,000'+ trains.

It certainly lessens the impact of the more frequent breakdowns.
