P42/UP Gevo/P42 on the point--that's unusual! Making its Truckee station at 12:45pm. Hopefully MJ will spot you and give you a good wave and he heads down the hill.

Amtrak must rebuild every P40-42 now. The failure rate is horrible. And all the new power from Siemens and Progressive is still in the shakedown stage. Unproven.

Lack of proper maintenance can be the culprit too!

We have to  prove that a profit can be made in passenger service, but at what costs to the equipment and ridership.?
