New to RailFanAZ: I have camped often at Picacho Peak state park and enjoyed the trains. I would like to take my friend there to watch, but I would like to go when we could expect some traffic. Is there any information about the busiest time or day at Picacho?

As AZRails stated, Welcome to the site.  Yes, we can help with the alerts, for the UP Gila Sub, you can go here:
https://aztrainalerts.groups.io/g/UPTransCon/

Also, we have a BETA in place for SMS, however, you would need to PM me as it is not public.  (Keep in mind, if you don't have unlimited SMS messaging, your cell carrier could charge you for it.

This site is FREE of charge. However, the development and maintenance of this site, Remote Systems and RoboFoamer takes a significant amount of time to put together and maintain, with raising ISP and Server Costs as well. If you like what you see please help support our site by making a donation. Enjoy and Thank you for all your continued support!
