VIDEO: Union Pacific Rail Inspection Car

Tony Bizjak, Oct 19, 2014 

Union Pacific’s “geometry” car on the Valley Subdivision rail line in Roseville and Marysville is a key resource for keeping the rails safe.

Union Pacific Railroad’s EC-4.  The EC-4 is a 96-ton, 82-foot-long rolling track inspection car which travels 800-1500 miles a week making sure that heavily used railroad tracks are in good working order.
