Mile 746.6 from San Francisco


Ten-Mile was part of the long, circuitous route around the northern edge of the Great Salt Lake. Dry, inhospitable geography and steep railroad grades requiring helper locomotives in several locations led the railroad companies to look for an alternative, more direct route. Once the Lucin Cutoff was built across the Great Salt Lake, the distance was reduced by 43.8 miles and the new route was much less steep. The towns along the abandoned northern route declined once the new section was established.

Ten-Mile was a section station established in 1869. The name was derived from its distance west of the Lake section station. The station consisted of a section house, train car body, and a water tank, though nothing but disturbed soil and broken glass mark the spot today. Four years after it was established, the section facilities were moved to the nearby Seco townsite.
