Of Historic Railt vay
SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 23.- ,1)-
A 55-mile section of the last railroad

Pacific and Central Pacific in 1869
to link the Atlantic and Pacific
coasts is to be abandoned if the in-
terstate commerce commission grants
The line, now operated by the
Western Pacific railroad, lies between
Kelton and Lucin, Utah, and is part
of the transcontinental route aban-

The Southeern Pacific has been
operating one train a week over the
55 miles from Kelton to Lucin, with
virtually no business, although .it

that section of its line.
For a time the old line around the
north end of Great Salt Lake was
maintained as an emergency route
should ligh water make the Lucin
cutoff impassable. But few trains
ever were sent over it, railroad offi-
cials said, and the track is too light
to carry the present heavy locomo-
tives and trains.
The section of track to be aban-
doned does not include the scene of
the driving of the golden spike,
which linked the Central Pacific,
built eastward from San Francisco,
with the Union Pacific, built west-
ward from Council Bluffs, Iowa.
