Work Train In Arlington

A work train is heading out to Arlington this morning. For a rail line that only sees 2-3 trains a year, there sure has been quite a bit of activity out there this year. I went out there a couple weeks ago and there was construction equipment on the north leg of the wye that leads to the power plant.

Buckeye and Arlington had a monsoon storm last night so I'll head out there when the ground drys out in a couple of days.

Update on work train:

The work train with ballast loads went out to Hyder to work on a bridge near there.

Hmmm, working on a bridge on tracks that has been Out of Service since 1996 makes me think that UP does have some plans in mind for the area out there.

The regulator and tamper has been in town the last couple weeks or so and has been getting track warrants to head west almost everyday out of Buckeye.

Any thoughts?

Yah, but old ones. UP is either gearing up to reopen the line, OR they are trying to enhance the value for to sell it. UP is interested in win=win for UP.

Yea, I'm up for a recon trip out there. I have good information on 2 milepost locations which had recent activity.

I'm think that in mid-late October we should have ideal weather in the low-mid 80's.
