UP Albina Yard & Engine Facility Tour

Monday, August 24, 2015 - 1:15pm to 5:00pm

Albina Yard has been the Union Pacific Railroad’s primary Portland yard for nearly a century. It lost its container business when UP converted the ex-SP Brooklyn Yard to be the Portland COFC & TOFC terminal but Albina still retains the classification workload it has had for all of its history. It is a classification yard and processes over 1200 cars per day. We’ll have a guided tour of the yard on board our bus followed by a stop and look into the Portland Engine Servicing Facility and ask questions of the UP staff present as well as a chance to take pictures of whatever equipment is in the vicinity of the maintenance facility.
