UP 3227 train 62

UP Train 62, seen here about 1952 at Pullman WA, ran from Ayer Jct WA to Moscow ID. Usually powered by Pacifics 3226 or 3227 in this era.

The track, bridge, and station are still here in 2011 but the UP is long gone. The old Pullman city hall is seen to the left of the loco and the old Pullman High School appears above the loco.

These 3200 engines had the most beautiful steam whistle I have ever heard!

Picture taken by my father, Alfred B Butler.
Yes. He liked the Milwaukee, mainly because of their electrics, but he also liked the NP, GN, and UP. He had a better camera than I did.
