“According to Liisa Lawson-Stark, local Director of Public Affairs for Union Pacific, the number one rail line was impacted when a locomotive had stalled between Newcastle and Auburn, followed by a rock slide in the same area. The situation was compounded by the ongoing track replacement project.

“The TRT machine is working on our main line number 2 right now, so that line from Rocklin and Colfax is out of service,” Lawson-Stark said.”
