Remarks & Notes 
Union Pacific 3095 West, train CLS (“California Live Stock”), pulls through the siding at ironically-named Dry Lake, Nevada, to drench and wet 18 triple-deck cars of hogs en route to customer Farmer John’s in Los Angeles, 365 miles further. The porkers needed the cooling on July 17, 1977. UP was the last major railroad to haul livestock on the hoof. Company wells supplied the water in this most unlikely spot, stored in the former steam locomotive watering tank seen in the distance.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
