Railroad Wedgie

This afternoon, I saw a piece of equipment on the lead car of a Union Pacific intermodal train that Lisa had seen before, but was new to me.

Railroad Wedge

This is an Arrowedge®. Developed in conjunction with students at BYU, this rebuilt intermodal container is placed on the lead car to reduce wind resistance on the long train.

Most trains are traveling slowly through the area today due to maintenance work on this stretch. The maintenance equipment is parked on the House Track across the street from Fernley House tonight again.
