Scottsdale RR Museum / Union Pacific / BNSF

Recommended Posts


Took a quick visit to the McCormick Railway Park in Scottsdale during the week. I visited this place last in February of 2008.






Ex-Southern Pacific, now Union Pacific 7135, with Ex-Cotton Belt, now Union Pacific 1972, hauling a small mixed consist through out downtown Phoenix into the Union Pacific Rail yard... Opposite the Parking Garages is Chase Field; Home of the AZ Diamondbacks..

Love this shot!









He stopped on the tracks, and nobody said anything to him! :)

That power move reminds me of the refuel moves done at hoboken terminal with 5-7 locos truckin' around back and fourth to pick them all up before going to the pump. :cool:

Those locos sat around a bit, i bet it gets a cosmetic shop call within a year or so. Clean it up & put some paint on that exposed metal.
