The Marysville Sub is one of Union Pacific’s busiest routes, supporting tremendous traffic between Gibbon Junction, Nebraska and Kansas City. This was especially true in the late 1990s when Pentrex produced its two volumes covering this active area. Volume 1 covers the line from Gibbon Junction to Marysville. In Volume 2, we pick up the action at Marysville, Kansas, the crew change point for this 228-mile stretch of heavy-duty railroading, and follow it east to Kansas City.
The traffic is bustling and train meets are plentiful as up to sixty trains a day work across the single-tracked portion of the line. At Topeka, the action gets even better. Southern Pacific’s “Cotton Rock” line shares track with Union Pacific from here to Kansas City. The final sixty-seven miles are all double track and the trains race along the bottomlands of the Kansas River.
Heavy coal trains, drag freights, and fast intermodal trains ply the line. UP’s newest motive power is on display, with both GE and EMD “AC” diesels on the point of many trains. Unit coal trains are seen operating with distributed power, and visiting diesels from other railroads are viewed heading up other trains. Glorious scenery and high-density action fill the screen in this exciting tour of Union Pacific’s Marysville Subdivision Volume 2!
