Anyone know if there are any locos in wait on sidings or anything train wise that I could take advatage of in Moab area. If I did go up to Crescent Junction how busy is that mainline and any good areas to shoot from?

Thanks for any help.
I was in the area back in March and caught a local heading east around Thompson Springs on a Friday around 6:30 pm (I don't remember the exact time as I don't have the original file on my computer). UP had some engines parked around here:

That's the Green River Subdivision between Grand Junction and Helper.

As for the line near Moab, that's the Cane Creek Sub. Last I heard, the Potash local runs once a week on Friday afternoon.
