Review of Union Pacifics Idaho Main Line Bliss to Pocatello Volume 3 DVD

 3 of 5 (1)
In our third in what has become a three-part series across southern Idaho, we continue our tour of Union Pacific's Oregon Short Line route between Bliss and Pocatello.

Trains work their way across the Snake River Plain through small towns, farms, and wild, open country. Water tanks from the steam era remain at Bliss, Kimama, Minnidoka, and Wapi and classic code lines still follow the rails creating a sense of nostalgia. We find an old passenger and freight depot at Shoshone as well as a preserved Amtrak waiting area, a throwback to when the Pioneer once ran on these rails.

The Eastern Idaho Railroad interchanges with the UP at Minnidoka and we will see it in action at Acequia and Rupert.

One of the most impressive features of the Nampa Subdivision is the crossing of the Snake River at the American Falls Dam. The program wraps up at UP's busy yard in Pocatello. Modern UP trains rolling over classic rails in a timeless setting best describes this look at Union Pacifi
