This topic is for serious Cajon followers and NOT coffee shop types please...
As a Southern California High Desert local, I hope to visit the pass at least every 2-4 weeks and update the triple-tracking progress. Other Cajon visitors may find other important updates to share with us.
Saturday, August 18, 2007:
At Summit, major grading for the third track has taken place, and is almost shocking to see for longtime visitors. A three-track cantilever signal bridge is now in place at the west end of the present crossovers. The upgraded Summit crossovers plant appears to NOT be a full flexibility arrangement. The missing switches will probably be put at Silverwood, slightly over half a mile downgrade to the west.
About July 2007:
A third track is being installed. A new three-track cantilever signal bridge has been erected at the far west end of the new Daggett plant. Union Pacific track #1 (making for four tracks) will need a new eastbound signal positioned when the present signal bridge is deleted.
