Remarks & Notes 
"Dispatcher 57 to the local at Ostrom over… Yeah guys MOW is just now clearing up between Oroville and Marysville. I am going to have to run six westbounds through before I can take you up to Oroville, over." Nothing like a track project to create a backlog of trains in the Canyon. New rail is being put in between Oroville and Marysville creating large work windows that shut down the line for hours at a time. Finally, the work was done for the day which allowed the flood gates to open and delayed trains to finally get moving. Union Pacific 4340 led the parade of six trains as it brought a long ethanol train through Oroville, California. Behind this train was a BNSF manifest, UP Oil, another BNSF manifest, a UP manifest and the Canyon Flyer. Not a bad time to be trackside.
