Coal trains in Seattle

A northbound loaded BNSF coal trains meets a southbound UP coal train at CP Lucile.
My, how that area has changed since I was last there about 1994! Is the bridge the pic is taken from new? Is the track veering off to the left the entrance to UP Argo? The next two to Stacy Street/SIG? The right two to King St/Interbay?
The bridge is the Lucile Street overpass. It use to a wooden structure, I can't remember when it was rebuilt. Yes that track off to the left goes into UPs yard. The old M1 is the Colorado Main to Stacy St. and the old M2 is the Lander Main to KSS.
I just looked at my photos from Argo from 1990 and the new overpass was there then. Not sure what I was thinking. The track arrangement sure is different to the south, though. Gotta get up there this summer.
