The California Livestock  Contributor's Pick!       
Hot on the heels of the westbound van trains came the CLS with its head end block of hogs - business which lasted until the mid-nineties. The train would be stopping out west of Rawlins to pick up additional hog traffic that came up off the Greeley Sub and was set-out online for the CLS later in the evening. There are a couple fast forties augmenting the imposing DD-40AX and the train will really roll across the high plains.

Cody Erben General So many interesting tidbits...joined rail, livestock, a Centennial. Any recollection why the lower masts would be turned -- the signals look somewhat new, but wondering if maybe they were dual-headed aspects for the passenger area in front of the depot. 2/14/2013 12:01:09 AM
