I'm pretty sure today as I drove past downtown that I notice a single double-stacked rail car in the UP yard downtown. I've never seen a double-stacked car on the PHX Sub - is this common?

Hi Dave,
It is not common (UP has no Intermodal Ramp in Phoenix) and I got an email with a photo of it on the sub, heading west.

Ya, that's the one.  Lol.  It'll be interesting to learn where/when/if they are unloaded.

This was the IKCPX-10.  Couple Intermodal cars as UP is now providing the service to Phoenix.

Figures.  I'm modeling the UP PHX Sub in N scale (gradually, mostly Magma Jct with a mainline loop) and sold all my stack cars because, you know, they don't do stacks to PHX.  🤪
