Remarks & Notes 
UP E9 No. 960 and E8 No. 928 face off in the late evening hours of June 22, 1978. No. 960 will be part of a quartet of E9s the next day pulling the Hinkle Special train out of Portland to celebrate the grand opening of the then new Hinkle hump yard. UP invested heavily in improving the yard. Unfortunately, it attracted freight traffic that used to move directly to North Platte, and carload service to the CNW connection at Fremont, NE from the Pacific Northwest often took 1-4 days longer than previously. The 928 would head to Seattle for Family Days service.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)

The best that the Streamlined Era had to offer, brought together in one handy album. Includes EMD, Alco, Baldwin, F-M, and GE - plus a few surprises.
