Reno Snow Train at Emigrant Gap in the Sierra Nevadas
Continuing West, UP 5728 is just about to pass into the viaduct that will take it under I-80 and back onto the double track at Emigrant Gap.
UP 5092 and another SD70M lead the day's only eastbound Z-train up Donner Pass at around 7:30am, passing the old railroad facility at Emigrant Gap, complete with boxcar station (far right).

The lowest elevation snow still present from this past winter's storms is seen at just above the mainline at Emigrant Gap as the CZ special grinds uphill towards Donner.
