Now this is some passenger train!

Thinking about Art's post about the practicality of long passenger trains, this link was posted on OGR yesterday of the 4014 in California.

How many would have room to run something like this? I am actually trying to put together something similar but not sure I could even run it on the club layout.
As best I can tell its headed up by 4014 followed by a pair of water tenders and maybe two diesels. Can't really count all the cars.

Interesting...it says I have to disable my AdBlock Plus to view the video. I disable it, but it still says I have to disable it to view the video! But I do get a very short view of the train before the advisory pops up.

Its actually just a photo. I was able to download it but was reluctant to post it here as its clearly labeled copyrighted. Some forums don't want copyrighted photos posted.

That is amazing, especially in the this age. I have always felt that the Union Pacific has always known how to do it right and has the courage to do so. To me they are more than just another railroad and this is just another example in my view.

Great picture, Pete.

Same here, I get away frem those pop ups as soon as possible, and you maybe should not click on them.

How did I get stuck living in NJ
I was mesmerized by the rail work in the bottom of the picture.

23 cars?

From an operational viewpoint, that train is probably "handled" more like a freight train, insofar as braking is concerned.

I'm wondering if the "graduated release" feature (which is standard on modestly-sized passenger trains) will work with a consist that long...
