Remarks & Notes 
Waiting. "Dispatcher 74 to the UP 8687 west over." "UP 8687 over." "Yeah guys hold there before the grade crossing in Truckee to allow for the Roper (which is 15 minutes ahead) to pass Shed 47. I want to make sure you guys can keep momentum on the hill. After you, I have 4 more trains lined through the big hole. Over." "Sounds good. Out." "74 out." That conversation was heard as the Union Pacific 8687 and a long MNPRV train came rumbling into Truckee. The engineer brought his train to a stop just outside of Old Town Truckee where he would wait for 15 minutes; The perfect amount of time to grab a coffee.
