    I'm wondering why so many units on that AMTRAK train

    Amtrak will often add power if they have any private cars in tow. That could be a possibility. The two new units might have simply been DIT.

    Very much variety in your selections this week, Will, and welcome back! Where is that massive line of stored engines?

    Thanks that's what I was thinking that the other units were 'dead -in-train"

    fitz,

    I am not sure, but I think those locos are near Cienega Creek Preserve area. That is between Benson and Tucson. I know the UP had some in storage there but did not realize the large number.
