They have been there for some time now....discussions about this from time-to-time on Trainorders. One just a couple of days ago... http://www.trainorde...d.php?1,4265826


That "looping" track is former route of the main line, now a siding. The current route, a lot straighter, now runs along the highway.



The locomotives can be seen from the Sunset LImited.

The locomotives can be seen from the highway. If your pay attention you can spot the railroad police patrol too.
