Bataan Memorial Trainway, El Paso

Bataan Memorial Trainway

Named for the victims of the Bataan Death March, El Paso's Bataan Memorial Trainway provides a crossing-free corridor for UP trains to pass beneath the northern edge of the city's downtown area. It begins at the western throat of SP's yard east of downtown, and ends near El Paso Union Depot, a distance of about 6 blocks. A small park located about 2 blocks east of El Paso Union Depot offers a slightly elevated view of the west end of the trainway. Photographed in March 2002, a maintenance crew uses a backhoe to load scrap metal near the trainway's west end.
