A Sight from the Past
Title:  A Sight from the Past
Description:  One of many semaphore signals installed on the original California to Oregon mainline, the SP Siskiyou Line, in 1907 before the opening of the Cascade Line in 1926 dried up traffic but one of the very few that lasted until 2007. This had been the Northern-most pair on the line for at least a decade, located less than 5 miles from Springfield Junction (the Cascade Line junction).

5 Locomotives, 4 Paint Schemes, 2 Railroads
Title:  5 Locomotives, 4 Paint Schemes, 2 Railroads
Description:  This was definitely the catch of the day on my relatively short Memorial Day visit to Eugene Yard, this was quite a rainbow for 2014-era Union Pacific as these days the vast majority of locomotives on trains here are a made up of a pure set of Armour Yellow, Harbor Mist, Red, White and Blue ES44ACs and SD70 variants, but on this day the lash up seen here definitely broke the mold (and there was a second patched SP AC44 in the yard too!). This is located at the South end of Eugene Yard, lash ups of power are often kept here while they await their next asignment. These units were built, from left to right: 2008, 1996, 2007, 1995, 2011.

UP Weyerhaueser Switcher
Title:  UP Weyerhaueser Switcher
Description:  Former DRGW 3129, UP 1445 has just gotten done switching Weyerhauser, Kingsford and possibly Lehigh's Cement and heads to the Main off of the old SP Marcola/Wendling Branch at Mohawk Junction (28th Street). DRGW 3129 was one of the two last GP40's built for Rio Grande. 3129 and 3130 were wreck replacements and were built in 1983, 9 years after the last order of GP40-2s, and are more externally similar to the GP50. UP 9987 is one of the few built and last remaining WP GP40-2s on UP's roster. UP 1445 has since recieved a full Union Pacific repaint.

Southern Pacific Caboose In Use And In Very Good Condition
Title:  Southern Pacific Caboose In Use And In Very Good Condition
Description:  This MoW ribbon rail train was being pushed rear-end-first employing a rarely used espee C-50-9 caboose. UP has a small handfull of these SP C-50-9s still active on their roster and the 4702 is possibly the best looking of all. Most of its sister cabeese have fallen victim to tagging and the often rainy Oregon weather. The 4702's home for most days is in Oakridge. The C-50-9 (4700 series) were the last cabooses SP ordered and were delivered in 1980. Note the size of the lash up on the train parked on the siding.

Title:  Warbonnet Dash 9s Bring In Grain Train
Description:  I was very happy to see a duo of these beauties working by themselves on the head end of this Westbound "earthworm" train, even if to some railfans arent "real" warbonnets. Also putting my brother in the author credits for finding the stairs that aloud this picture. Thanks bro.

Heritage 1 Pumpkin
Title:  Heritage 1 Pumpkin
Description:  After a a very productive day of railfanning at the depot, we move a mile or two north on the Seattle Sub, and catch BNSF 966 North coming to a stop, the volume of trains coming off the junction going North has stagnated the Northbounders behind them. (to close together)

Off the Oregon Trunk, and on to the Cascade Sub
Title:  Off the Oregon Trunk, and on to the Cascade Sub
Description:  Our only train of the day due to many MoW crews all over the Cascade Sub, heads south on the 75 miles of trackage rights BNSF has on the UP's Cascade Sub, until it diverges back on to its own Gateway Sub. Note that this far south on the ex-SP Brooklyn-Cascade Sub, the searchlights dont have their trilight replacements set up yet, unlike up north on the line where searchlights are either removed, or awaiting replacement. These will probably last a bit longer than the others.

Amtrak 14 Blows Through Town, and VERY Thankfully, Passed a Failed Sabotage Attempt
Title:  Amtrak 14 Blows Through Town, and VERY Thankfully, Passed a Failed Sabotage Attempt
Description:  We chased 14 from Natron to the North end of Junction City at the grade at 661.3, after highballing out of Eugene. As soon as the crossing gates were lifted we heard the Amtrak engineer report over the scanner that they had just blown through a stack of tie plates that were stacked up on the west rail, thankfully only causing a severe "jolt" through the train, as he reported around 661.8-9. Very happy nothing bad came out of this, but i hope very badly the sociopath who put them there is caught, however unlikely that is.

Yoncalla Hauler
Title:  Yoncalla Hauler
Description:  CORP Job #501, the Eugene-Roseburg job described over the radio as the "Yoncalla Hauler" operates with UP power, typically as seen here, in the form of two back-to-back SD70Ms as does its Northbound counterpart job 508 the "Medford Hauler". Up until 2007 the Siskiyou line still had several semaphore signals in use between Goshen and Yoncalla, but today this is all that remains of the blades that once covered the line. These signals appear to be a pair that was welded down in to searchlights by SP which replaced them in a seemingly very random order. I'm no signal expert, but it's a safe assumption to say these were likely taken out of service in 2007 with the last semaphores when the lines more modern signal system had fully replaced the old one.

UP 1996 Where She Belongs, Leading Train ZLCBR
Title:  UP 1996 Where She Belongs, Leading Train ZLCBR
Description:  After the 1996 was unveiled in Roseville it wasnt very long before she found a permamnent assignment on the point of the Los Angeles/Brooklyn and return Z trains, the highest priority freights on the I-5 corridor and the modern equivalent of SP's Pacific Coast Expediter. UP 1996 kept this assignment until all the heritage SD70ACe's were rounded up in North Platte for a calendar photo, and after that the rule to keep them on home rails was seemingly abandoned. The ex-SP Dash 9 is also right at home on this train.

In NorthWestern Colors
Title:  In NorthWestern Colors
Description:  In 2007 catching a manifest made up with this kind of lash up was indeed a rare thing, after 2008 catching any of these locomotives alone on a manifest would become rare as more GEVOs and SD70ACes began flooding UP's roster while the C40-8s and SD60s were largely taken out of service and placed into storage in many of Union Pacific's larger facilities. There were also very few locomotives remaining in CNW paint at the time, a very rare sight on the Brooklyn Sub, and the Geeps are very rarely seen outside of switching duties. The location is Meadowview Road.
