    Northern California-Out of Niles Canyon sitting at a Fremont RR Xing.

    Was able to get to a crossing to catch the beginning.
    Intermodal mixed well/flat/spine

    UP Powered by 5 + 1




    Little over 5 minutes of Intermodal passing by

    Did you slow down so you would get trapped by the train? I do it all the time! (y)

    LOL yes, actually had to time that :sneaky:

    Where I live in Newark there is a mainline from Oakland to San Jose and East out of the valley. Small Industrial yard nearby so it can be quite common over by the house to meet a Train crossing. 2 Sets of WYE's over there which slows them down too.

    Nice work, great reference for people who want to model present day UP, especially those K-line reefer blocks with the generator cans. The XPO container was a new one for me, too.

    Yes, helped me out a bunch. I have little experience and always had to try to look things up for ERA's and such online and now I have a living example.

    @jagged ben - XPO Logistics acquired Pacer International (Pacer Stacktrain) in 2014 and Con-Way in 2015, later selling off the LTL business in 2016.

    http://www.xpologistics.com/

    They've seemingly come from nowhere to become a Top 10 global logistics company.
