A Little UP Break
Author: TTM

I have been sorting through my slide collection and thought I would share a few, hope you enjoy.

On 5-24-57 James Turner caught the Union Pacifc Portland Seattle Pool Train southbound passing the tower at Black River Jct just south of Seattle with FM Erie Builts for power.

Thanks for looking,

Tom

Questions about the pool trains:
This one appears to be crossing from UP to UP. What about the different RR's station stops between Seattle and Tacoma or weren't there any? Did all the pool trains use King St station?

UP always used Milwaukee Road track Black River to Tacoma, GN and NP always used their line. In some towns (Auburn) they stopped at their respective stations. Not sure about Kent or Puyallup.

Didn't UP use Seattle Union right up to Amtrak?
