Here ya go.

googel earth

Just a FYI, a quick way to locate a lost topic that you've posted a reply to is go to your MLS Forum User Profile. Then click the View Posts By User link just to the right of your Posts: count. When the results are returned scroll to the bottom of the page and use the navigation control (i.e. the >> icon) to jump to the last page, which lists the most recent posts that you've made. If not found on the last page, then back up one page at a time until you locate the topic.

Hey Mike,

That's even an easier method and in the right sort order (i.e. most recent first to oldest last), thanks. :D

JJ,

Is on the Feather River Canyon route of the UP.. The Y was 2 let some body go North as I recall.. The track across the top of the Y is really hard to see, some thing about a tunnel.. Hope this helps..

It's no wonder you are having a hard time finding it when the thread was mis-named (and misspelled) googel earth. Of course, what we are talking about here is the Keddie Wye. You will find that by clicking onto either link I just provided or by clicking onto the image below:



This question you posed, John J, aptly illustrates the need to properly NAME a thread before posting a topic as a new thread. After all, who is going to look for "googel earth" (misspelled) when they're really trying to find " Keddie Wye?"




You can also look at my own current thread, the Phase II Update, where I am about to examine the remnants of the Northern Pacific wye at Cle Elum.

It took me three years to figure out what JJ was posting. If JJ starts spelling correctly, I won't be able to understand him./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/laugh.gif

Thank you all for your posts. No wonder I could not find it.

My mext question is Is it still in use?

And.....Is it just a junction that forms a Wye?

It's not used to turn trains around.

As I understand the responses on that thread, the full wye configuration is in place but the wye is not used as anything more than a junction.

JJ,

Keddie wye is on the old Western Pacific R.R. which is now part of UP of course. Most of its life it served the WP and a search of that railroad would probably be the most productive for info.

I looked at the maps carefully, I cannot see a "WYE track" configuration. I do see a WYE switch.

I do not see where the WYE "triangle" configuration exists.

Regards, Greg

Wow, that's pretty hard to see, I could not make out the turnouts on that side, or the tunnel portals.

Well, that's that!

Thanks!

Greg
