I have been doing some research on the Tennessee Pass and was hoping someone might be able to answer a question regarding the Tennessee Pass being used for railcar storage. I see that Dotsero to Sage and Parkdale to Pueblo are still active, while Sage to Parkdale is inactive.
I'm wondering what portions of the TP are being used for railcar storage. My main concern is whether or not UP is using the Dotsero to Sage segment for storage? Thanks
The reference I Googled states thet the west end of the currently inactive Tennessee Pass route is the temporary home of coal cars idled by the mild winter and soft Asian economy.
I would assume that the stored cars wouldn't be very far from the active rails through Dotsero.
