Union Pacific Railroad Rail Yard, Laramie Wyoming

These photographs depict the Union Pacific Railyard in 2112, and 1986.  The 2012 photos are cell phone photos, and unfortunately my finger shows up in quite a few of them, as I was trying to shield the cell phone camera due to the glare present that day.

Remarkably, it was pretty snowy on both occasions during which I photographed the railyard, even though the photos were taken twenty-six years apart.

Natrona County Soda Shed Sidetrack










This photograph probably doesn't make much sense in comparison to the earlier ones in this blog, but this is the sidetrack for the old soda shed in Natrona County, Wyoming.  The shed had been in place for a century before coming down just a few years ago.

Situated near a major BN line, while sidetrack is now unused, the main line obviously is.  A sign still remaining on the location warns that there isn't sufficient room to clear the structure for workers who might be on the side of the rail cars.

More on the history of this site can be found on the entry on this topic on Lex Anteinternet.

Roundhouse, Evanston Wyoming


This is a large Union Pacific roundhouse in Evanston Wyoming.  It's one of very few left.  This one is now used as a museum.

Newcastle Train Station, Newcastle Wyoming.

Burlington Northern depot in Newcastle Wyoming.

This is the Burlington Northern Depot in Newcastle Wyoming.  I don't know the vintage of the station, but it's a nice, well maintained, older style depot.
