Burt approaches Mike and Sid on the bridge overlooking the Tacoma yard. That turntable used to belong to the Northern Pacific and it had a roundhouse that had curved top doors. The engine house was slated to be torn down the following day. I got a picture of it somewhere.
A Union Pacific freight goes north but I was not in a position to shoot it so all I got was the yard.
This auto rack looked strange to be in all aluminum paint with a very small logo on it. What could it be?
it's the world's smallest logo on a freight car! 3 little Kansas City Southern logos were attached below the 125th anniversary symbol. I know guys who
would want to see this!
The other side of the bridge was the old Tacoma Union Station! I seem to remember this spot in my younger days!
Back 40 years ago I caught an Amtrak departing Tacoma station in 1972. Compare this photo with the one above. It got saved from demolition and is now used as a Court House if I remember right.
