stuffed and mounted
Title:  stuffed and mounted
Description:  UP#6901 in Lower Ross Park, adjacent to the former departure yard in Pocatello. While attending ISU in the mid 90s, I spruced up the cab and scrounged up some old gauges and a couple of ammeters to make the control stand a little more presentable.

Still Stuffed and Mounted
Title:  Still Stuffed and Mounted
Description:  UP#6901, stuffed and mounted in Ross Park since 1986, has recently been tagged. I worked on cosmetically restoring the cab in 1995 and it appears the small group I worked with in 1995 has long since disbanded. It could use some TLC again.

Title:  Stuffed, Mounted and Rusting

Pocatello Service Track
Title:  Pocatello Service Track
Description:  This is the Pocatello Service Track (a.k.a. the Longbranch), where local power is still fueled and serviced by a handful of firemen and oilers. The Diesel Shop, located on behind the Service Track, has been mothballed since 2003. I started working for UPRR at the Pocatello Diesel Shop in January of 1997.
