Review of Blue Mountains Fron Huntington to Hinkle DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
In the Summer of 2000 and Winter and Spring of 2001, Machines of Iron crews followed the Union Pacific line through the Blue Mountains from Huntington to Hinkle. 14,000 ton grain trains are lifted up the 2.2% grade at 25 mph by 36,000 plus hp through such places as Telocaset, LaGrande, Hilgrad, Motanic, and Meacham. Before all the mergers the Blue Mountains were the steepest grades on the Union Pacific. Over the years technology has changed but the Blues haven't. Lot's of "wing" and snow . . . . this is mountain railroading at its finest.
