Re: MTY's breaking the N-G distribution model

Dave,

UP only had trackage rights into the LA basin. The UP's LA&SL came on to ATSF track at Dagget and left RR west of San Bernardino, I think at Riverside. The Mojave District was Santa Fe only Barstow to Mojave where it used trackage rights on the SP Mojave to Kern Junction, thence Santa Fe into Bakersfield. I've always thought of Barstow as a three way crossroads account the Santa Fe lines and the physical connection to the UP not involved. But you raise a good point that it was the operational interchange point for LA-Salt Lake traffic.

John,

Thank-you
for the explanation. I am not familiar with California rail
routes. I had forgotten that Barstow was really the junction
of four lines, not just a simple division point. (SF and UP
lines to the east, joint SF/UP west to SF, and SF and UP
lines west to LA.)

Must
have been a hopping place - and not very big to boot.
(Compared to today's BNSF Barstow classification yard,
and the UP yard in Yermo.) Talk about a yard master's
challenge...
