Filmed in the Arizona
desert between Maricopa and Gila Bend in
an area known to rail fans as Shawmut.
One of my favorite places along the
Sunset Route I was able to get another
perspective of heavy intermodal rail
traffic of the Union Pacific.
This eastbound Wisconsin & Southern freight has just left Madison, Wisconsin with over 90 cars, is crossing Lake Waubesa and about to head through McFarland. The Yahara River Bike Trail runs right next to this line. This line was formerly owned by the Milwaukee Road. The sound was recorded in stereo with a Tascam DR-40 digital recorder and is best appreciated with headphones or audio speakers with good bass! Crank it up!
