Long hood forward on a short local in the West Desert.
Author: Paniolo_man

Since it was forcasted to break 60 degrees today in Salt Lake CIty I decided it was a good day to head out to the desert. I parked at the junction to the former Marblehead Branch several miles west of Delle, UT. The track takes a long curve through a little valley, I walked across the curve since any video would have less sun glare from that angle. I had hoped for something big like an intermodal train or a Valmy Coal Train. However in my 3 hours out in the sun I was only greeted by a familiar local. They seem to always run long hood forward out here, there must be a good reason. At least I had outside time to sit down and read a book. Driving back into Salt Lake City I passed the Valmy Coal train headed west. Someday I'll actually plan ahead and wait for a container train in SLC and head it off out on this curve.

I am hoping to get a better camera this summer, pending other budgetary items.

Nice video, but talk about being in the middle of nowhere!
