Union Pacific
Utah (Castle Rock)
August 31, 1996

This eastbound Union Pacific freight is working the uphill grade out of Echo Canyon, Utah and about to pass Castle Rock. The westbound main is in the foreground; the two lines separate widely near the top of the canyon to take best advantage of the grades. Both will soon be out of reach of the photographer in side canyons to the west, not to re-emerge until near the summit at Wahsatch.
