Western Pacific

Western Pacific [Union Pacific]
Lake Point, Utah
August 20, 1998

At Lake Point, Utah, a westbound freight on the former Western Pacific starts across the southern end of the Great Salt Lake on a long causeway, on its way to Wendover and Nevada. The Union Pacific's Los Angeles & Salt Lake line is hidden just below the rocks in the foreground and will parallel the Western Pacific from here into Salt Lake City. Interstate 80 hugs the shore.
