    Pretty dirty for a UP unit. I have seen high powered GE road units pulling ballast trains up here. Does this indicate motive power surpluses due to traffic slowdowns?

    I don't think so. Generally SD70's just aren't used on UP mainline service here that much these days. I de-saturated the picture a bit for dramatic effect, but the whole train in general was pretty dirty. I just don't think they pay much attention to MOW equipment as long as it runs, or it could have recently been up on the pass.

    Conversely, the California Northern power is generally spotless.

    I rarely take my heavy Canon gear to the tracks anymore. All three of these were taken with the same camera in virtually the same spot using an all in one bridge camera, the Sony RX10 M4

    Good shots. Lots of people are switching to small "bridge" or mirrorless cameras. I benefit when their old, heavy gear shows up on the used camera market.
