Three railroads

In this shot looking northwest from the US 93 overpass, the tracks below belong to Southern Pacific. In the far background at left, the Western Pacific tracks go under US 40. And the through truss bridge in the distance is the Union Pacific's branch down from Twin Falls, Idaho, now long gone. Union Pacific now operates the former SP and WP lines, having absorbed them in the 1990s.
