A few hours ago, UP brought in another long string of empty doublestack cars for temporary storage just outside of Brentwood, Ca. This single main track has not been used in 10 or so years for mainline activity - with the recent exceptions of the storage aspect in the past year. Rumor has it that the line will be reactivated and double tracked at some point in the future as a route out of the San Francisco bay area. Currently, UP has to run trains from SF north to Roseville and then reclassify them and head to points in southern California. On the lead of todays move was the UP9162 C40-8 and UP4759 SD70M. The rear was brought up by UP4376 SD70M. It is unusual to see trains going through town even though they are being parked for later use at the Port of Oakland. The best part of todays action was when the Oak Street crossing gates were coming down, a Brentwood fire truck was approaching code three. The fire truck decided to race the train to the Balfour Road crossing and had just managed to get across the tracks just as the gates came down at that location.
