Ah!  I love the smell of a good subject title in the morning!
This is the EB Zephyr out at Gorge (Donner Pass) today.  I took this one primarily because of the three units on the point- kind of unusual.  The P-42's used in Oakland are usually Chicago based and are cycled home for maintenance on 5&6.  I'll hazard a guess this one was DIC.

Yea, the point out there gets full sun so show doesn’t last long. We still have a bit of snow on the ground in Alta/Dutch Flat but it won’t last much longer.

The door on the third unit is open.  Wonder why.

Did the rotaries (207?) get used up there to any extent?

No, not really. This year the rotary work was mainly beyond (East of) Shed 10. 20mi up the line from here.
