Remarks & Notes 
42 miles northeast of Kingman, Ariz. on U.S. Route 66, the Truxton Flyover allows trains to change main tracks and take advantage of more favorable grades when coming from Needles, Calif., while remaining properly aligned for refueling and inspections at the crew-change point in Belen, N.M. Eastbound trains have to be on the south track climbing through the canyons and then they have to be over on the north track by the time they get to Belen. Instead of stopping to cross when other trains are present they can pass right over at track speed. The 35 million dollar project completed in 2020 supposedly eliminates 900 operating conflicts a week(aka "meets") which can be incredibly impactful on the busy transcon. On this March evening back in 2022 an eastbound waits below for a fresh crew while a stack train hustles west on the "fly over".

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
