Does anyone know why UP 1982 hasn't gotten off the Picacho Wye onto the mainline yet? -AZRails

They had a setout at Randolph first.  Then they had Crew Change at Picacho, AZ.  They should be at Marana by now.

You are welcome!  Looking at the computer, It looks like they left a Locomotive on the Phoenix Sub for the EB that is currently at Picacho.  So the EB will pick up the Locomotive they left on the Phoenix Sub at CP PX977.

Update - PHX Crew is bringing the locomotive and a set of cars from Randolph back to Phoenix.  It does not show if 1982 is the locomotive tho.

Never seen this type of move before.  However, the EB that is currently at Picacho is still waiting on Locomotive.

Could it be UP 1047? That's what I think it could be. -AZRails

The current EB at Picacho is waiting for a Locomotive then will be on their way to Tucson.  The split from the MPXTU-13 which is now MTUPX-13X is working Magma Jct at the moment..

Makes sense now, The PC shows UP 5442 was set-out with a small manifest train at Picacho Wye and the Phx Crew is taking it to Phoenix.  Reason for the Crew Change as there is a Traffic Congestion at Tucson.

The MPXTU-13 is waiting at Stockham for the Eastbound to finish their Crew Change....  Should be moving within the next 30 mins.
