Lift that Rail

The Union Pacific continues to operate rail-laying trains in the area.

Rail TrainRail Train

After another train passed through, this train, with the rail laying crew perched on the platform on the end cars, whistled off toward Hazen.

I'm not sure how long these rail trains will be here before they move along and the next set of workers come through to actually replace the old rail with the new rail this crew is dropping alongside the tracks.

I wouldn't expect that Union Pacific would be too worried about scrap metal thieves in this case, as a quarter-mile long length of steel rail is a bit difficult to haul away by hand.
