A Tier IV EMD leads an empty coke train across the Altoona Sub.
UP 1825 and 1990 lead LTS82B back east with a couple of empty plastic pellet hoppers from Andersen Windows in tow. These units were built as the CNW 6871 and 6857 respectively.

UP 958500, a heavily modified former SD40-2, pushes one of UP's RELCO built tie pick up trains into Roberts.
LTS82B passes some nice looking birch trees on their way to Bayport. UP 1990 was built as the CNW 6857, and is no stranger to this trackage.

CSXT 8350 leads ORPTS west of Roberts.

It's hard to do much better than this on the UP these days. Roseport coke loads roll east through Roberts behind a clean Tier IV EMD and a crusty wide cab GE.
