Union Pacific
Utah (Castle Rock)
August 17, 1998

Castle Rock is located about halfway up Utah's Echo Canyon, where the tracks veer out of sight of Interstate 80 (and become inaccessible to anything less than a four-wheel drive vehicle) until just south of Wahsatch. Here the eastbound track is already out of sight, having disappeared into a tunnel, and the westbound track visible here is emerging from a rock cut that also takes it away from the Interstate. Both lines will run side by side down to Echo where they will form the UP's two-track mainline through Weber Canyon.
