Remarks & Notes 
What we saw. This is the view most of the cars on Highway 70 had... Their windshield wipers going back and forth and the plume of UP 844... Here in the Virgilia area, we are down to about 10MPH (mind you the speed on Hwy 70 is 55MPH), so the pacers can get their videos and shots. For 45 miles I never saw the train until this little peak here, and then at Keddie Wye. So, those that chose to stay home instead of deal with traffic and weather, this is what it looked like!

Pace and pan shots of trains. If you're not in the locomotive cab or on-board the train, it's the next best thing to being there.
