Union Pacific's Sidney Subdivision Part 1 Cheyenne to SidneY

Union Pacific's  Sidney Subdivision Part 1 Cheyenne to SidneY

24.00

Running nearly 220 miles between Cheyenne, Wyoming and North Platte, Nebraska, the Sidney Subdivision is a double-track main line that has carried Union Pacific trains for over 150 years. Following the route of the historic Pony Express and Overland Stage, a parade of increasingly long and heavy trains traverse the southern Nebraska Panhandle.

In part one of this two-part series, we will cover the western half of the Sidney Subdivision beginning in Cheyenne. Trains climb east over Archer Hill then sprint into Nebraska at Pine Bluff. We will visit several small towns, many of which started as sidings on the first transcontinental railroad.

Witness huge manifest trains pulling up to 200 cars and measuring up to three miles long. Adding to the variety, unit trains of grain, coal, and intermodal, including hot-shot Z trains sprint across the Cornhusker State heading to and from Bailey Yard, the largest railroad classification yard in the world.

Our summertime visit coincided with UP Big Boy number 4014's eastbound excursion across the subdivision and we will see the giant 4,000 class engine at several locations.

BNSF'S COLUMBIA RIVER SUB

BNSF'S COLUMBIA RIVER SUB

24.00

Travel to Eastern Washington State and tour a lesser-known rail line that connects Stevens Pass with the busy Funnel. The Columbia River Subdivision begins at Wenatchee, which garners the nickname "Apple Capital of the World" and continues through orchards, coulees, and wheat fields to Latah Junction in Spokane. This was part of Great Northern's route constructed by the "Empire Builder" James J. Hill and today serves as BNSF's Northern Transcon.

This is your trackside seat to watch trains race along the banks of the Columbia River and sprint through the heart of Eastern Washington's Wheat Belt. One of the highlights is Trinidad Loop where trains climb to the top of the Columbia Plateau near Quincy. We have included several fantastic aerial views of long trains snaking around the loop.

Besides BNSF trains, we will visit nearby short lines including the Columbia Basin Railway and the Washington Eastern. Both railroads sport classic EMD power from SD9's to a snoot nose tunnelmotor and 20-cylinder SD45! Shot in beautiful 4K!
