Laramie Wyoming UP hotspot now has a live railcam
Permalink  
 


Just noticed it today maybe its first day and a great location Laramie on the UP. I spent the night here back in the early 90's shooting video.

Just love the action and the scenery during summery weather in Laramie. Laramie a flat spot between grades going east or west. Noticed today

that the westbounds seem to be coasting at 45-55mph while the eastbounds are already noticeably slowed as they tackle the grade going east.

This is going to be a great addition to the many live railroad cams today. Notes...Laramie like Revelstoke and Flagstaff and a few others...its a 

"no whistle zone" so you have no warning to look for a train other than noise. So far the noise of a train coming at Laramie is only audible when

its "right here". Which means you pretty much have to watch all the time or you might miss a trains power passing by. Just snowed in Laramie

and we get to see what the UP is running via the Overland Route.
