Butte Street Junction to UP Freight House

The UP Freight House Spur

Picture Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This UP freight station in Los Angeles had already been closed by the time this picture was taken in 1985. It was used for produce deliveries and other carload freight. UP did not have a large presence in LA at that time, compared to route-miles of the Southern Pacific and all of its spurs. This area now has been partially modernized with other warehouses, virtually all of which are served by truck today. Photo by Mike Palmer, January 1985.
