Pacing the UP Siemens Special
Author: ColoradoRailfan

Smart phone image stabilization is an awesome thing!

I don’t typically do videography as I’m more of a still photography kinda guy. However, I got this video of the special west of Watkins, CO yesterday on UP’s Limon Sub. The audio is nothing to write home about, but the video didn’t turn out half bad!

Maybe they would have. Maybe UP was cheaper.

That might be true. Who knows what CSX is going to charge, though.

They could get the CSX system tour.

I don't know of any other info about that, but I took some photos of the special and posted them here:

In the 70s or 80s, Amtrak delivered some F40s to MBTA from Illinois in Amtrak trains. Conrail complained that they were entitled to the revenue. Don't know the outcome.
