Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

UP over the former Western Pacific between SaIt Lake City and Winnemucca, including the paired track with SP (pre merger) through Palisade Canyon. The "Trains" article called this line "Trains in a desolate landscape" and it sure is. We got out and about on the salt Flats, Wendover Hill, Arnold Loop, which to my mind is simply splendid, ranks up there with Crawford. You can see westbounds 13 or 14 miles away, then they round the loop and head over Silver Zone Pass. We Followed the line through the sage brush to Hogan tunnel, then across tine desert (VERY lonely) to Wells, Palisade Canyon and Wininemucca. Splendid desolation.

The old Western Pacific was a challenge in the best of times. The Union Pacific does a fine job giving us a great shoe of the strength it took to pull heavy trains through this region. The beauty of the region is amaizing to see with Arnold Loop and then the Pass. Another fine production by Highball.

Interesting program on part of the old western Pacific east of the ususal Feather River Canyon. Now I know what Arnold Loop actually looks like close up. Possibility for future trip to the US.

From a great variety of diesels like the SD40-2S to the more modern wide cab SD60MS plus other fallen flag road names like the Chicago and northwestern, Rio Grande & Southern Pacific, this is big time railroading in the West for both people & animals (mostly seagulls). The weather for this program is mostly sunny but does include lightning storms as well. Here's a fact alert: one of the junctions on the line connects with the Nevada Northern.
