Here are a few maps, renderings and photos that might help envision the site and what is currently planned. (I wrote about the topic again today here.)

This is a rendering done for the City of Tacoma by Olson Kundig Architects of what the trail might look like if it is located not on the railroad right of way but on the side of Hood Street next to the Tacoma Art Museum
Here is a City of Tacoma map showing the proposed alignment of the Prairie Line Trail. The UWT is at the upper left and the Foss Waterway at the lower edge.
This is my artsy cell phone picture of one of the rails running through the BNSF right of way with the United Way (Sprague) Building in the upper left hand
One more view looking northeast. The United Way's current parking lot is to the left
Same direction but taken closer to the corner of Hood and Pacific Avenue
