Late #5 in Utah
I could have tried for 2 number 5's in the same calendar day like I did in June, but I didn't bother going to look for the 7/24 train coming through about 20ish minutes ago. The 7/23 version of #5 hasn't even made it to Colfax as I type this. I took my son to mountain bike practice this morning and had checked the status of last night's 5 knowing it was super delayed. Sure enough, still show 10+ hours late, so I was able to make a quick stop in American Fork, UT this morning at the Pioneer Crossing bridge over the UP/Frontrunner tracks and snag this video. The northbound Frontrunner went by as I was pulling over to park, missed getting it in the video. Think this is the second time in a month that #5 has been late enough for a morning shot, but I missed the last one because I was watering the pumpkins and left 2 minutes too late! Gotta get my priorities straight. Was only a few minutes late picking up my son from practice, so it all worked out perfectly this morning.

Re: Late #5 in Utah
There are some real advantages to being 10 hour lates on the CZ. You will be able to enjoy the whole Nevada desert. I was on such a late train; the the ride in Nevada was fascinating. Miles and miles of barren country with mountains, tunnels, etc. The part of the railroad, which I had not seen, came alive for me.
