When the Union Pacific bought out the Southern Pacific one of the properties they acquired was the Brooklyn Yard in Portland, Oregon.In addition to the classification tracks and the intermodal/truck terminal the Brooklyn Roundhouse, home of the SP&S 700 and SP 4449 (two giant Northern class steam locomotives), is located here.
Here are a few photos of activity in the yard. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge them or click here to start a photo tour.
Pictures taken on Thursday, Dec 23rd (the day the SP&S 700 returned to the roundhouse after Holiday Junction at OMSI).
