This view taken from the 1300 South/Ballpark station looks in the
opposite direction from the image shown on the previous page in this
series. TRAX continues ahead, joining street pavement for the rest
of its run into and through downtown.
UTA bought much of the right of way for the Sandy/Salt Lake
Line south of center city from the Union Pacific. Local freight
service continues during overnight hours, at times when TRAX is not in
service. The present freight operator is the Salt Lake City Southern Railroad,
owned by Utah Railway. The rusty freight track branches to the
left. After this photo was taken, this portion of the spur
line was electrified.
