Facility Tour:  J.R. Davis Union Pacific Roseville Rail Yard Tour


  • Aaron Hunt, Union Pacific
  • Gary Rubenstein, Sierra Research


Union Pacific's J.R. Davis Rail Yard in Roseville has been a feature of that community for over 100 years.  It is the largest rail facility on the West Coast, and it has been the subject of a number of air quality related studies and demonstration projects over the last six years.  These include the first ARB rail yard health risk assessment; UP/Placer County APCD MOU; introduction of gen set locomotives; Roseville Rail Yard Ambient Monitoring Program (RRAMP); AB 1222 remote sensing demonstration project; and Advanced Locomotive Emission Control System demonstration project.  We'll meet for lunch at a conference room at the Yard office, during which we'll see a presentation about the Yard and the air quality studies performed here.  After the presentation, MLC will provide vans for a guided tour of the facility.

This event is organized by the Mother Lode Chapter of the Air and Waste Management Association.  This event may be attended by students and their professors, and interested members and their colleagues.  We welcome representatives of regulatory agencies, academia, industry, community and environmental groups, and the consulting community.
