I believe I found a couple of links here a while ago, but have lost them over time.

One was a cool simulation of the UP-NW line on a map. It showed a real time simulation of train locations based on time of day, such as when and where oncoming trains would pass each other.

The other was a nice map of the UP-NW line, with every switch and interlock location on it.

If anyone has a link to these, I would really appreciate it, or any other tidbits on the UP-NW line.

Thank you.
