U.p. nor-Cal ramp question.
Author: The-late-EMD

The u.p. port of Oakland yard has all domestic containers being loaded there now. So does their Lathrop/stockton intermodal ramp. So where does U.P. load international containers in northern California now? Are do they just transfer the cargo from 40ft. Cans into 53ft. Cans for American distribution of the goods? Are have they just surrendered all nor-Cal international business to BNSF?. More PSR railroading I guess.

International volume still loaded and unloaded at the Port of Oakland yard along with whatever other Domestic volume can be tendered at the facility.

The Oakland yard seems to be under used the last few years so I can see domestic and international cans being loaded their. Compared to the espee days Oakland, 5th ave. And Mulford yards are almost abandoned.
