Union Pacific Rail Road stuff

I will be keepin you ninjas informed on union pacifics changes ....its intresting too me.Maybe a pin is in order DP..

Union Pacific Railroad Plans

The ASA has learned that due the recent down turn in the economy the Union Pacific railroad will cut back on their double track project adjacent to the dunes. They will double track as far as the Cactus siding this year. The long term is 2010 for construction from Cactus to Niland. The railroad plans to ultimately double track the entire length along the dunes and replace the culverts, including Wash 10. The new Wash 10 culvert will NOT accommodate vehicles.

The railroad plans to start a fence project this week or next. It will be from about Wash 29 to Wash 1 near BLM kiosk. It will be open at each wash in increments of 10 feet (i.e. 30 or 40 feet). The railroad believes the train wreck a year ago was caused by sand. The fence is intended to minimize this concern.

The railroad will continue to ALLOW the BLM and the public to access the dunes via the Wash Road which is within their right of way. However that could change as the railroad management may elect to withdraw this privilege at anytime.




I'll miss Boardmanville....

This just in....
Clyde Crossing is gone.
GlamisSandDuner texted me photos that he just took.
He returns from Glamis tomorrow and will post his pics here.
He confirms that Wash Rd has been graded all the way down to Clyde, but the aprons approaching the track on both sides are no longer there.

He also confirms that the Crossing at Wash 23 is probably not passable with a Truck and Trailer. Leave along the cables and padlocks. He'll post pics of this as well.




I know this stuff sucks ...But knowledge is power ..
