Marshal Canyon

I happened to be at Marshal Canyon today when a UP Westbound Manifest train came through. Luckily I had my Iphone camera at hand and I took some snaps!

The UP Manifest was headed by #8520, an SD70ACe. Here it is in dynamic braking as it rounds the curve deep in Marshal Canyon.

The last two photos were taken as the train rounds the curve entering the yard limits at Cheney, WA. Apparently the local road gang have just rectified a nasty road crossing. Here they have just poured a new concrete crossing to smooth the surface for vehicle crossing the main lines.
