About Pocatello

Pocatello is a city located in southeastern Idaho, known as the "Gateway to the Northwest." It is situated at the junction of two major freight transportation routes: Interstate 15 and Interstate 86. This strategic location has made Pocatello an important hub for freight transportation in the region.

One interesting fact about Pocatello is its rich railroad history. The city was once a major railroad center, with several rail lines converging in the area. The Union Pacific Railroad, one of the largest freight railroads in the United States, still operates a major rail yard in Pocatello. The rail yard serves as a crucial hub for freight transportation, handling various types of cargo and facilitating the movement of goods across the country.

Another fascinating aspect of Pocatello's freight transportation history is its connection to the Oregon Trail. The city was an important stop along the trail, where pioneers would rest and resupply before continuing their journey westward. The Oregon Trail played a significant role in the development of transportation and trade in the region, and Pocatello's location made it a crucial point of connection between the trail and the growing railroad network.
