    Trains leaving south out of Las Vegas begin their journey toward Yermo on the Cima Sub. Downtown Las Vegas serves as the division point between the Caliente and Cima Subs, and marks the point where UP changes between Mountain and Pacific time. The area immediately around the city leaves a bit to be desired, although one can work some of the casinos into a nice picture or two. One of the most scenic spots along the Nevada portion of this sub is the area south of town where the mountain pass leaves the Las Vegas valley, an area known as Bard. The line here makes a hard climb out of the valley and then winds through a short but scenic canyon, before hitting the flat dry lake beds south of Jean and on to the California line.  Most pictures on this page are taken between Las Vegas and Jean, NV. ( about 35 miles or so south of the city.)
