This is also where the produce warehouses and freight warehouses are located. UP's Sullivan Gulch line comes in on the left and connects with lead into UP's Albina Yard (staging). Double track on right heads over the Steel Bridge over the Willamette River and into Union Station. Eventually, a scratchbuilt wharf will occupy the riverbank here complete with a freighter loading lumber. East Portland. Closeup of East Second Street (UP).
