Can You Dig It?
Title:  Can You Dig It?
Description:  Do not dig? I DO dig! I'll do whatever I want, Sprint. Some of you might recall that Sprint was once owned by SP, and the name is an acronym that literally stands for Southern Pacific Railroad Internal Network Telecommunications. The long divested Sprint's headquarters are located only about 20 miles from here in Overland Park, KS, and the Sprint Center is only a couple miles away in Downtown Kansas City, MO. This is UP Train IDULB 19 rolling down Main Track 3 of the UP KC Metro Sub. at Shelley Avenue.

Westbound UP Intermodal Train
Title:  Westbound UP Intermodal Train
Description:  The Kansas City, Missouri Skyline looms in the distance as SP Heritage Locomotive leads UP Train IDULB 19 down the UP KC Metro Sub. past the former Rock Island Armourdale Yard. The yard passed to the Southern Pacific via the Cotton Belt after the Rock shutdown, and obviously the yard became UP property in 1996 with that merger. Depending upon how you look at it, this engine is right at home here.

UP Train Pass
Title:  UP Train Pass
Description:  No day on the railroad ever goes as planned. Case in point: UP Train IDULB 19 on the left on Main Track 1 is stopped due to a train near West Yard seeing a smoking wheel.

Upon inspection, it was determined that one brake of the Neff Yard pickup wasn't released by the inbound crew, and was dragged across Kansas City for 10 miles before the train moved quick enough to get it smoking.

While the conductor and a couple managers check things out before bringing the trainman back to the engines, UP Train MDMWT 19 sneaks past on Main Track 2. Above the trains are the eastbound control signals at CP Z008 on what has to be the crookedest signal bridge I've ever seen.
