Emory, Utah is a now unremarked townsite just south of Castle Rock near the head of Echo Canyon, with only a small cemetery (not visible here) to distinguish it from the surrounding desert. This location, a short distance south of Emory, is also known as Signal Canyon. The eastbound freight is heading upgrade towards the summit; at this point the two grades have not yet separated. Echo Canyon Road is in the foreground, with Interstate 80 on the other side of the railroad.
