    Thread Starter: Beverlyhelper

    I've been posting almost daily reports on traffic over Stampede Pass for awhile over on the Truth or Rumor - Stampede Pass and it's been suggested I move my reports over here with its own thread. So here I be. I can hear trains from about MP124 to Stampede, and the Pasco East dispatcher...

    Thread Starter: Itsed65

    I live in Pinole CA, so I am pretty fortunate to live very close to some great areas to watch trains. I am constantly, if not always successfully, trying to improve my photographic skills, and with the great weather we have had lately around these parts, I have been taking a lot of pics, so I...

I'm relatively new to the Yakima Valley area and have become interested in modeling BNSF's Yak Sub operations in HO scale. I've learned quite a bit by researching and trackside watching on the rare...

    Electric Train power backup?

    Thread Starter: Tysim4

    Hi, I was wondering if there are systems in place in the event of a large scale power outage or blackout, for electric trains to get their power and continue running apart from the grid? Thanks

    Tales of Tower 17

    I got out at 0600 yesterday morning and caught 2 EB trains on the UP Glidden sub. Went home, and got back out at 1630 to catch WB traffic. Here are some

    Back home in Texas after wrapping up freshman year at LA Tech. I live in Richmond, which is next door to Rosenberg, a crossroads for KCS, UP, and BNSF.

    Empty coal drag from my neighborhood heading back to Utah at Patrick NV. These trains waste no time crossing the desert on the Nevada Sub.

    Exactly. NO power they are stuck until a diesel can come rescue them. That includes most lighting and all heating/air conditioning being gone. Battery
