Union Pacific
Pocatello, Idaho
August 18, 1998

As its hub of operations for the Pacific Northwest, it's not surprising that the Union Pacific's Pocatello yards are among its largest. The East Benton Street bridge provides a perfect vantage point for watching operations, here seen from the bridge looking east. The former Utah & Northern line to Butte heads off to the north at right, passing alongside the immense grain elevator at the upper right.
