When I say hell I mean Provo Utah. I always felt an uneasiness once I got to Utah county. This ride was from Salt lake to Provo and back. I can be seen at 17:45 poking my head out of the baggage car door.
Nothing beats the smell of coal smoke while getting cinders in my eyes.

I had a regular seat in a passenger car but standing in the baggage car doorway was much more fun.

Rode an open box car bound for Atlanta. And yes, Dave, best seat on the train!

Even with a diesel loco, one is in danger of brake shoe flecks if looking out an opening on a descending grade.

Really interesting footage of downtown SLC before gentrification. It's interesting to see the old cars pacing the train.

Didn't this coal burner set a bunch of fires in Mormonland?

Tell us about YOUR carbon footprint and why excess levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is a good thing and how human-caused global warming is a chinese hoax.

Climate temperatures correspond more closely to solar activity (sunspots) than any other indicator. There's also strong evidence that temperature change is responsible for CO2 fluctuations, not that CO2 causes global warming.

The climate-warming thesis has been out long enough that short term prophesies are failing. Ice caps adjust up and down, as always, usually in opposition (erosion on one cap is balanced by growth on the other). And the IPCC/East Anglia email hack showed how global warming advocates were adjusting data to conform to the algorithms, which were just that--computer models.

I'm not a flat-Earther, Dave, and neither are the polar bears. They're doing just fine. Can we get back to trains? In 1964 and 1965 I hitchhiked around the West, hopping several trains, sometimes having no idea where they were going. Now that was an adventure!

This article reminds me from class in high school that carbon dioxide, sunlight and water were needed to grow plants.

Your site also contains these articles:

"Whistleblower tells all, claiming Hillary Clinton, Chuck Shumer, Kirsten Gillibrand and other prominent Democrats are involved in human trafficking, sex slavery, and Satanism."

"Coordinated family attack on Robert F. Kennedy,Jr. proves that he's the only Kennedy willing to vote for humanity and stand against the vaccine deep state."

"Ammo stockpiling: Four more reasons buying more ammo is one of the smartest things you'll ever do before SHTF"

Not a particularly credible source.

Lately I've heard about a-holiness in the upper management of UP, but in the past I often heard about how great UP was at preservation, because living in the west, we would shudder at the thought that the Southern Pacific company itself *could* have kept a running Cab Forward, Daylight, 4-10-2, and even a couple of PA's, but were all about the Benjamins and scrapped things as fast as they could and bulldozing stations to save tax money.

Nothing to do with Mo'ism, but I like trains. If I had a few million, I'd pay to restore and run the surviving types of those loco's.

In the 1980s, both locomotives traveled west to Sacramento for the opening of the state railroad museum. We followed them over Donner Pass and I played hooky from school that day. It was a pretty neat father-son outing.

I think watching trains brought us closer together and the church couldn't stand it.

The people I know on the UP would think you were being kind by using the word "A-holiness." They have much more explicit and less kind terms.
