Union Pacific LOA32 18 of February 2006. A chase with a few friends - Conclusion

In the first blog entry of this chase we left the LOA32 in Garden Grove after they had set out a few loaded centerbeam cars.

We pushed ahead of the train and waited for them in Westminster.

We jumped ahead of them again for a coming and going away shot from the Hiel Ave grade crossing. UP LOA32 18 Huntington Beach, CA - 021806UP LOA32 18 Huntington Beach, CA - 021806

At Warner Ave, they ran the power around the train so they could shove the rest of the way to Reliable Lumber. Jeff and Ryan get some images as the power shoves away from them back to the train.

At Reliable Lumber they shoved onto their track to pull out empty centerbeam cars, then pulled forward, back onto the main branch. Shoved these back and cut off the empty cars, then back again onto the customer track to set out the loads. All of this movement is coordinated by the conductor and the engineer, usually with just hand signals.

For the trip back to Anaheim we caught them coming under the 405 freeway

They stopped in Garden Grove again to spot up a few boxcars that were on the main near the Monarch runaround track at the Office Max distribution center.

We stopped at the Stanton Wye in order to capture them on their way back to Anaheim.
