Union Pacific's Lyndyll Subdivision
Salt Lake City, UT to Milford, UT
Updated:   02/18/2005

Introduction

        The Lyndyll Sub is one of the most unheralded subdivisions in the western US. As part of the UPís LA&SL line, it is part of a vital link between southern California and the eastern US. Trains traveling through the central portions of Utah are met with wide flat plateaus and high desert scenery. This wonderful backdrop in which to watch the action remains largely unexplored, at least as far as what is available online is concerned.

        With favorable access to the line, much of it running beside well paved roads, this sub provides the railfan a choice of beautiful scenery and rustic old Americana as it passes through the sparsely populated towns of Utah's farming belt. The north / south orientation of the line favors the westbound trains more, but locations are available to get a good eastbound shot or two as well, especially in he high sun summer months (early in the morning that is)
