Unusual UP stack train
Author: calumet

Once upon a time stack trains were just that--stacks and nothing else-- but with PSR we're seeing stacks with other loads aboard.  Here's a UP train at Woodland Jct with about 70 double stacks but whose first ten cars are auto racks. The second photo shows another curious feature of this train.

Our local trains are also so very confused. What were strictly stack trains are now a mix. Autoracks, stacks and manifest freight. But I haven't seen a DP unit one car from the hind end!

And that DPU is one of the original real  x7550 series AC6000CWs with wings!

Guess that last car was really hot and added at the last second.

Just placed the DPU where the tonnage said it was needed.
