The area around has changed a lot over the decades, but by-and-large North Yard has remained the same for those same decades. This, along with Roper in Salt Lake, was Rio Grande’s main classification yard. Under SP, the yard was packed full still as many trains ran on the Moffat from the Pacific Northwest to Texas. Under UP, however...particularly in the last few years...traffic has dropped off quite a bit.
