Thanks for helping me to make a believable layout!
You mean like this?  
Just more questions:  
all signals are normally red, when a train stop at the station on main track the one outside is yellow or green?
When a train pass through the station witout stop are all green?
When a train use siding the outside signal is upper red, below yellow?
 
THANKS AGAIN!!!!!!

Signal question - By sergio_vadora on 06/14/07 at 06:19:51 - 'Grafica1.jpg' 21 KB
I know that exist a section dedicated to model trains but there I didn't receive answer, so I try on this section.
I'm modelling UP modern era and I like to know which kind of signals I have to put on this layout:
 
the plan is based on the following configuration ( I've also attached the original layout of my "future railroad"....
 
My proposal is correct or not? Is correct to use single light signals? Do I need double lights somewhere?
 
Thanks for your help.

This is part of a press release titled:  
"Union Pacific Thanks Employees, Sacramento First Responders and Residents for Recovery Efforts at Ceremony"
with the subhead"
"1,400-ft. Approach to Bridge Totally Rebuilt in 15 ˝ Days After Fire"
 
Maybe they are learning a few things about public relations:
Quote:
Omaha, Neb., April 3, 2007 – Union Pacific today thanked dozens of local, State and Federal agencies and private contractors who enabled the company’s employees to rebuild a 1,400-ft. bridge approach destroyed by fire on March 15. . . . . In a ceremony beside the new concrete and steel trestle, Dennis J. Duffy the company’s executive vice president-operations . . . Union Pacific is ordering equipment that both departments felt would assist them with their operations. Equipment being ordered includes:
 
Sacramento Fire Department – ten dry suits for the fire/rescue boat crew members and two marine search lights to assist with night operations.  
 
Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District – six safety packs, each of which includes: a 2007-compliant air pack, a 60-minute air bottle with regulator, a rescue sled, a search and rescue bag that contains 225 feet of rope and necessary hardware and a flat-head axe.
 
Duffy also presented $4,000 grants to each of the River Park, East Sacramento, McKinley and Woodlake Homeowner Associations. The neighborhoods are located near the bridge and the residents showed great patience and understanding during the round-the-clock rebuilding of the trestle.
 
Union Pacific once again expresses its appreciation to:

One more from the UP web site:
 
Quote:
Saturday, March 31, 2007
 
Main track two of the bridge approach was open for train traffic at 1 a.m. PDT today.  
 
Both lines are now open for trains to operate over the bridge at 10 mph, with the original maximum speed of 25 mph to be resumed in seven days.  
 
All trains that were detoured are now operating on their normal routing. About 50 trains a day operate over the bridge.

Re: GM series 66 locos for UK - By Jock on 08/21/06 at 05:41:13 - 'DRS_66412.jpg' 190 KB
Hi there! The class 66 is a very reliable locomotive, with very few minor technical faults developing from time to time. The biggest criticism has to be the level of in-cab noise when the engine is working hard. It actually borders on acceptable limits.  
The feul tanks on the new ones have also been made smaller in order to maintain the same weight as the first batch. This sometimes means the loco has to be changed over mid journey. Overall, I quite like them.  
 
This is 66412 during it's first outing, here in Scotland.

A couple of questions here:
 
1) What is the classification of this locomotive? NS has ES40DCs and BNSF and CSX ES44DCs
 
2) Have been trying to find an updated UP roster that has these locomotives listed or at least projected.  
 
Any help is most appreciated.

Union Pacific sues local photographer  
 
Glenn Bohn  
Vancouver Sun  
 
Tuesday, February 14, 2006  
 
PHOTO CREDIT: Mark Van Manen, Vancouver Sun  
Renate Huxtable shows some of her son's photographs and calendars  
featuring Union Pacific trains.  
 
WEST VANCOUVER - A local photographer with a passion for old trains is  
being sued by Union Pacific Railway, the largest railway corporation in  
North America, over a calendar featuring its trains.  
 
Union Pacific -- whose red, white and blue logo has red and white  
stripes just like the U.S. flag -- alleges Nils Huxtable violated the  
company's exclusive right to use its Union Pacific trademark and design  
by producing and selling a "Union Pacific" calendar.  
 
A website soliciting money for Huxtable's legal defence says "the  
artistic rights of railroad photographers are under attack."  
 
Union Pacific, which built part of the first trans-continental railway  
across the U.S. and holds one of the oldest corporate trademarks in the  
U.S., disagrees.  
 
Brenda Mainwaring, the company's director of corporate relations, says  
Union Pacific isn't disputing the right of people to take photographs of  
its trains but will take measures to protect its trademark, logo and its  
name.  
 
Mainwaring said the company has authorized more than 100 companies to  
use its trademark for various products, including calendars, but  
Huxtable made use of the company name without its permission.  
 
"It's important for any company to protect their trademarks," Mainwaring  
said in an interview Monday from the company's headquarters in Nebraska.  
 
"A great deal of the value of a company is in its name and reputation.  
Therefore, it has to protect the way its name and reputation is  
portrayed."  
 
Nils Huxtable couldn't be reached for comment about the lawsuit, which  
could go to trial this June.  
 
His mother, who said her son is in Cuba at a train festival, said the  
lawsuit is "completely stupid."  
 
"He's been involved in these calendars for the last eight years and  
nothing ever came about that would warrant something like this," said  
Renate Huxtable, who does some work for her son's business but is not  
named in the lawsuit.  
 
"I get a little under the weather when I talk about it, because it's so  
unjust. This started last April and it's just been building up and up,  
giving us both a lot of stress."  
 
Nils Huxtable refers to his lifelong love for photographing steam-  
powered and diesel trains in the legal document that outlines his  
defence.

Re: Salina Sub Sightings and Info - By zwsplac on 12/21/05 at 16:51:13 - 'IMG_0004.jpg' 91 KB
Not too much interesting stuff happening on the Salina Sub these days, but I regularly see trains thanks to work. I did get a digital camera and took it for a spin today. These signals in this picture probably won't last too much longer, as UP has replaced most of their brothers over the years, especially recently. This is the easternmost pair on the Sub, located at about MP 120 from Kansas City, in Manhattan, KS.

Re: Union Pacific Picture Thread! - By zwsplac on 12/21/05 at 16:46:51 - 'up6415_manhattan.jpg' 108 KB
While my main camera was in the shop, we got a bunch of snow here in Kansas, and I was chafing over not being able to get pictures of trains in the snow. Well, why not by another camera, and a digital at that? Here's my very first shot with it, and I must admit, that it's everything I hoped it would be. This is UP 6415 in my hometown of Manhattan, KS. These dash-9's are the last reminder of the road which was far and away my favorite in my younger years.

Here's a shot just east of Salina of the end of an EB coal train and a WB about ready to head off.

UP 3900 was on the other end of the train. This is the last shot I took of the special, because I had to get my Dad back home. Hope you enjoyed the chase photos. BTW, I got a job at Kmart, which, conveniently, is right by the tracks! Hopefully I'll have more frequent additions to this thread.

An hour and 15 minutes later, the OLS train has completed it's push-pull to Junction City, and is arriving back in Abilene. This time, I'm ready for a shot I've been wanting for a while, at the nicely restored Abilene station.

Re: Salina Sub Sightings and Info - By zwsplac on 06/17/05 at 20:16:45 - 'OLSabilene_1_up5170.jpg' 117 KB
The train beat me to Abilene due to road construction (the 5th season in Kansas). Here it is boarding passengers, and it will do a push-pull trip back to Junction City, and then to Abilene once more. I had the option of riding it, but declined, because I thought there was a BNSF train coming, and because I wanted to see if there was anything interesting in Salina. After arriving back in town from Salina, I did catch a BNSF train! It's photos are in the BNSF Forum.

This is the small town of Chapman, located about halfway between Junction City and Abilene, and site of a seldom used siding (due to street crossing conveniently located in the middle of it. I beat it here by 5 minutes or so.

Re: Salina Sub Sightings and Info - By zwsplac on 06/17/05 at 20:09:13 - 'OLSairport_up5170.jpg' 118 KB
The tracks take the long way around west of Manhattan, following the river, while the highway cuts through the hills. This allows me to beat the train to the Manhattan Airport, and a slightly better lit shot in the always hard to shoot Kansas mid-day sun. The train was really flying through here! It wasn't hard to imagine it as AMTRAK doing 79mph!

As promised, here are photos of the OLS special I chased to Abilene. You will get to see a few of the locations on the line I haven't photoed yet. Eventually, there will be pictures from every point of interest on the Salina Sub in this thread. First off is the Special splitting the signals at the Delaware St. crossing in Manhattan.

Gravity Yard 6-7-2005. Mainline is to the right of the hump power. The switch to the right goes to the Port of Pine Bluff. Thanks to Bill McCaskill for the Gravity tour. If you ever get to Pine Bluff look for Bill at the Arkansas Railroad Museum.

UP 3895, EB just north of Hanover, Kansas on the Marysville sub. It would take 10 more hours for this train to travel the final 200 miles to Kansas City.

Action from today; 05-22-2005 - By dvchevalier on 05/22/05 at 23:57:51 - 'UP-EB-5220-West-of-EchoUT-052205-10x8.jpg' 216 KB
I was out chasing trains with my youngest daugther today.  Daddy's nine year old is taking after her father with an interest (obsession?) with the fun of the chase and capturing moments on film... or digital chips.
 
Here is some of today's action.  Here is U.P. 5220 headed eastbound West of Echo, UT.  The Union Pacific is undertaking a change over of the older signal towers and bridges to newer versions that look a lot whimpier.  Here you can see the old setting next to the new, with the newer one turned away from the track until it's ready to work.  Don't know how much longer they'll be around... but I will try to get out and photo more of them while they still exist.
 
Happy hunting, my fellow chasers!
 
Dave

U.P. 4193 WB West of Bancroft, ID, April 2005 - By dvchevalier on 05/15/05 at 10:43:08 - 'UP-Bancroft-ID-04-2005-04.jpg' 346 KB
Seems more like a winter day than the first days of spring in Southern Idaho in April 2005 as U.P. 4193 is on the point in single track territory, West of Bancroft, ID.  This spot is just a few miles from Lava Hot Springs, ID where the wife and I like to go at least one weekend each month.  She soaks in the sun while I head out and shoot trains!  Works out wonderful for both of us.
 
It is a real toss up some times... but I still like shooting with my 35mm over my digital camera.  True, digital is easier, but there is something about chrome that has more warmth and I feel more in control of my shot.
 
Let me ask any one who views this pic.  Can you tell if this is a digital or 35mm shot?
 
THXS!

Caught the UP business train heading through Missouri Valley back to its base in Council Bluffs, IA.  I was almost out of light and had to use my 50mm f1.4 wide open!  It was being pulled by UP's only clean engine.

The Union Pacific should really keep it in shape for 4 reasons.  
 
1. It is as close to a bicentennial as the UP can get.  
2. It represents a major orginazation that helps people all around the world.  
3. It is one of the things that is turning people onto the Union Pacific  
4. Because I said so.
