That is what I was alluding to back in 2007. UP did indeed buy the former Rock Island track from the DRIR with, at one point, plans to reconnect Sandown Junction. However, when the recession hit in 2008 and traffic took a downturn, I believe that plan was shelved and there hasn't been any further discussion about making it a reality, as far as I know.

I recall a while back the UP was rumored to be replacing the track fro under I-70 (DRIR end-of-track)
to Sandown Jct. Is this what you refer to in the caption? Any new info. on this?
