I have been meaning to start this series for quite a while and glad I finally got around to it. I have been a fan of the Trains & Locomotives TV Show, watching it on RFD TV for a long time. So, I’d say it was about time I started reviewing some of their episodes.
Episode 101 The Blue Mountains from 7Idea Productions first aired on 4/23/05. It features Union Pacific Trains out of the 100,000 square foot Hinkle Yard that was completed in 1998. It is located in Oregon on Union Pacific‘s Northwest Corridor, on the Lagrande and Huntington Subdivisions.
The Blue Mountains episode is a very enjoyable one for any railfan, especially those who have a particular attraction to Union Pacific. It features a wide variety of Union Pacific Trains, from grain, dirt, and stack trains, half stack/half auto racks, to only auto racks, and mixed freights. The power on the trains ranges from Pre-9/11 units, to the Flag Units that came out after 9/11/01 that I dedicated a Facebook Group to: Union Pacific Flag Units. There is even a Canadian Pacific and a Patched Southern Pacific motor in the mix here and there. There are a couple trains that have UP Units as Mid-Train Helpers (another Facebook Group page I have). In addition to the flat cars aka “bare tables”, center-beam cars, covered hoppers, and tankers, and miscellaneous box cars, there are also many of the box cars that I have another Facebook Group page for: Rail Box Freight Car Fans.
You see the trains in various types of weather, on flat stretches, on bridges, at the base of the Blue Mountains and going up or down various grades. I know that you will enjoy Trains & Locomotives The Blue Mountains, so check it out today!
