Remarks & Notes 
48' UP Areo Wedge - Designed by UP employees to reduce drag on the forward end of a double stack train, the areo wedge was "[y]ears in development, [and] the Arrowedge® is the latest innovation in Union Pacific's ongoing commitment to design, build and implement fuel-saving technologies" (from UP's marketing propaganda). Introduced on their Long Beach to Joliet Illinois stack trains, the wedges started to appear in August of 2013, and this one is mounted on an eastbound stack drag heading towards Yuma Arizona.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.

A much needed album given that there is no "category" to identify these pictures

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
Things that would be cool to model in HO scale.
