Espee's Natron Cutoff - Update

Just received an email from Zoe Richardson, Director of Media, Union Pacific.

Work continues to repair extensive damage caused by the January 2008 - the so-called "Coyote Mountain Slide."

The Union Pacific mainline artery between Oregon and California has been down more than three months, with no definite re-opening date.

The Coast Starlight resumed, being more a bus line than rail line on I-5.

When consider this photograph, clearing the upper severance, just south of Fields, and the lower severance, leaves a big problem of all the loose material, reportedly up to 20 feet deep, poised between rail lines.

That material has to be dealt with, and is proving to be a challange!
