Map Caliente - Bealville - Cliff

This is former Southern Pacific trackage, now part of Union Pacific. Some changes since the SP days: Santa Fe's trackage rights are now BNSF; SP's "Eastward" is now UP's "Southward"; Bealville was historically at the Bealville Road crossing and likewise Cliff was about halfway between Tunnels 5 and 7.
