Took a quick trip to Tucson and back from Chandler today and there’s a westbound UP mixed freight tied down near Red Rock with the CNW heritage unit as one of the mid-train dpu’s

1. Yes there are a few Z trains that run through here
2. The main line goes through downtown and there is an old station and museum to visit next to the tracks
3.The best and easiest place is to pull off on marsh station road just off I-10, You can park on the bridge. EBs struggle here because the grade goes up to 1.7%.

I'll be south of downtown Tucson next month and I have a couple of questions.  I am think I-10 (Cienega Creek, Benson, Vail) is a good way to play it for catching some action.
1.  Are there any fast trains along that corridor?
2. Is there any train activity near downtown?
3. Is there an area where the power is fighting an uphill grade along I-10?
4. Are there any good resorts/hotels/motels that are close to the tracks out there, and am I better off staying there rather than in south Tucson (I had been thinking about the Hotel McCoy).
Many thanks.
