UP MPXTU-29, lead by UP SD70M #4157, was involved with a collision at Baseline Road, sadly killing the driver, the only person in there.  :(  :'( My heart goes out to the family of the person involved. This photo is the view from McQueen Road. It's gonna be awhile until the line reopens for trains, and for Baseline Road itself. -AZRails
