  1. Definitely a place Id love to visit Brian, you describe it very well, it must be as beautiful at night, so remote, to the right of your photo, is that a dry salt lake.

    1. Hi Colm,
      Yes, that’s the dry lake bed at the right.
      I don’t know how much traffic uses this line now. One of the reasons we were out there in 2009, was that UP was upgrading its parallel former Southern Pacific line over Donner Pass for tall-double stack trains. Perhaps one of my West Coast contacts can fill us in as to traffic on the WP across the desert? Anyone?
