Turns out the ballast train went back east on Saturday evening.  :(

I wonder why they did, but my best guess is because of the fact there were no sidings to put them onto on the Phoenix Sub. The ballast train was bound for Arlington on the old West Phoenix line, which is still possible, but it's unknown at this time. I caught them at Coolidge on my way home from Tucson Train Day, going a mere 15 mph, dumping new ballast along the line. It was very neat seeing it, that's for sure! :D

UP5845 was to go to the bridge North of Coolidge on it's first round.  Train was WBOCLB (Work train-Bowie, AZ-Coolidge, AZ-Ballast).  It then returned as the WCLBOB (Work train-Coolidge, AZ-Bowie, AZ-Ballast) to reload and then come back to the Sub from what information I was able to gather.
