Upcoming MOW work on the Union Pacific Phoenix Sub

I got word that just after the first of the year a steel gang and tie gang will be replacing rails out this way. They should be replacing the jointed rail with CWR. Even though we had a tie gang earlier replacing about 62,000 ties, this tie gang will be here for different purpose, I did not know that there are 3-4 different types of tie gangs that do different types of work. With the recent electrical work and signal replacement (latest & greatest in LED technology) and the upcoming work, the railroad is putting an awfully lot of money into the area that only sees two or three 3-4 car trains a year.
