    Default Southern Pacific's Hislop yard

    Hi to all,

    While reading a document regarding the railroads servicing the Stockton Port area, there is a reference to the Hislop Yard.

    Any idea where it was located?

    No luck online.

    Thanks

    Denis

    Probably the UP yard in the middle of Stockton. Southeast of intersection of I-5 and Charter Way (Which is south of intersection of I-5 and CA-4.

    Wasn't there another yard used by the Sacramento Valley Traction rail... ( that may not be the correct name, ) but I think that little yard is still in use...although, Charles is probably correct. Hislop is a name that is found around Stockton. Isn't there still a BNSF yard in stockton?

    BNSF Mariposa Intermodal yard on SE edge of Stockton.

    BNSF Mormon Yard is about a mile NNE of that (?Hislop) UP yard. Runs E-W.

    Thanks guys,

    Found the following online, It seems to suggest the yard is part of the Western Pacific network (before UP's takeover in 1982).

    You can see on the extreme right the ATSF tower and diamond.
