The Utah portion of the Evanston Sub is dotted with stunning mountains and green fields, and is highlighted by the cliffs of Echo Canyon. One of the more awe inspiring locations in the west, this short section of the Evanston Sub is packed full of some gorgeous scenery and will make any railfanning trip one to remember. As part of UP's main east west route, also known as the Overland Route, it sees a fair amount of traffic headed to and from the west coast of the US. With a little work, a full gas tank, and plenty of memory, you'll fill card after card with some of the best images you'll find anywhere.
Access along the route is only so-so. The initial areas out of Ogden are a bit harder to reach as the railroad paces along beside I-84, and access is limited to the many pull outs and exit ramps. When you get toward Henefer and Echo, there are paved side roads that keep you much closer to the action. You'll rejoin I-80 after a bit and the tracks will disappear from view for many of the remaining miles in the state. Again a little work and some hiking can make up for locations where a car might not be able to go.
