Based on Apple maps you may be in for quite the challenge. Looks like a place I would like to live, but I'm not sure there will be more than one, you, model railroader there. Good luck. Glenn

Welcome! Lots of BNSF there. UP is a little West of ya though. Good UP in the canyon from the 80/84 split toward Ogden. Have seen multiple trains every time I have been up/down that hiway segment. I actually want to get pix of the dam/power and area West of MM92 - Devils Gate. Has an OLD building and associated structures that could be interesting to selective model.

Green River is a crew change point for the Union Pacific with a large yard and engine servicing facility. My Son used to work there for the UP as a Carman in the Car Repair Shop. BNSF is quite a ways away from there.

Boy, I stand corrected! Street view using Google Maps does indeed show a bunch of Yellow! Now I need to find where BNSF comes back into play along I80 just for giggles and grins. Have never seen BNSF in the I84 canyon so I suspect there is no shared trackage. Still want pix of the Devils Gate dam and power building. Will get there again sometime this summer - hopefully.

The BNSF crosses I-80 (North to South) at Cheyenne, Wyoming. They go from their mainlines in Montana to the Coal fields of North Eastern Wyoming to Denver.
