I don't know, I could only see stringers under the curved portion of panel track. I assumed it was for superelevation or just for leveling so none of the wheels would climb a joint.

I read that during the initial move the front driver (IIRC) started to climb the rail. The move was immediately stopped and 4014 allowed to settle back a foot or so, so the rail could be greased. Apparently that fix worked OK when the move was restarted because the driver didn't try to climb the rail again.

The UP West Colton yard is west of San Bernardino and south of I-10; so the question is; will 4014 be moved through the pass via the Colton cutoff, or via the BNSF SB yard through a more populated area?
If BNSF hates it so much then why are 3751 and 4449 always running on BNSF track. In fact 4449 has spent more time on the BNSF than she has on UP.
