  • AMTRAK JOINT LINE MOVE ON SUNDAY
    Posted Saturday, July 27 2013 at 0907 h MDT
    The scuttlebutt on Trainorders is that there will be an Amtrak move southbound on the Joint Line again tomorrow, Sunday, 28 Jul 2013. Apparently Amtrak CEO Joe Boardman is headed for the TTC, presumably for some event involving Amtrak's new ACS64s.

    The special's consist should be 2x P42s (numbers yet unknown), Pacific Cape, a Viewliner, Great Dome, and Beech Grove. The cars are coming west on Saturday's #5 out of Chicago and will be cut off at Denver. From there, it's south down the Joint Line to Pueblo and then on out to Avondale. There's no word on schedule, but I'd assume they'll get out of Denver as soon as #5 heads west and they can get power on and brake tests done. (I'm assuming the special cars will be on the back of the train, and will be cut off when Amtrak backs into their temporary Denver terminal. So #5 will be in the way until it departs.)

    The bad news is that it's supposed to be cloudy and storming tomorrow along the Front Range, so it may be a lousy day for photos.

    Once we see what #5 leaves Chicago with, that should give us an idea as to whether we're going to get a heritage P42 on this thing or not. HeritageUnits.com doesn't have recent enough sighting data on most of the P42s to figure out if any of them are a possibility. -

  • NORTH FORK CLOSED DUE TO WASHOUT
    Posted Friday, July 19 2013 at 2101 h MDT
    There's a report from "mojaveflyer" on Trainorders.com that the North Fork Branch is closed on account of a washout near Roubideau. That's all I have right now - updates as I hear more. - NDHolmes
