Roseville to Blue Canyon
I had a rare day off during the week so I decided to see what was happening on the Roseville Subdivision. I started in Roseville and found quite a few trains stacked up waiting to get into the yard. After about an hour, I headed east along the line towards Donner. I stopped in Colfax and found the rail grinder pulling into the siding after an early morning of work. After chatting with the crew, I continued east to Dutch Flat where I caught the Reno Fun Train along with California Zephyr #5. I heard the eastbound CZ #6 at Gold Run so I burned up the road to Alta and caught it coming around the corner. Things were a little quiet so I headed up to Blue Canyon and hiked down to Tunnel #1. After an hour and a half of no activity, I heard a west bound creeping downhill. I got ready and when the unit came around the corner, I saw that it was a new GEVO unit #5698. Being a worthy subject, I ran a mile back up the tracks to the truck and sped down to catch it at Secret Town and Applegate.
