Altamont Corridor Express

Knowing that the ACE route is on UP trackage (except in the San Jose area) which segments were on SP or WP previously owned tracks?

According to the Altamont Press, California Region Timetable #20 of March 2009:
San Jose Diridon
SP (via Santa Clara and Newark)
Niles Jct.
McKinley Ave./Hunter St.*
Stockton SP Sta.

* McKinley Ave. on former WP, Hunter St. on former SP, apparently the same place

I believe the Altamont Press railfan timetables were discontinued after the death of the editor and publisher, and as far as I know no one seized the baton. It must have been a mammoth undertaking to keep those issues up to date--just consider the additional trackage and interlockings being installed on LA Metrolink during that period.
