A friend of mine, Norm Richards, works at this yard and has sent me a barrel of photos and videos of CN consists, power, and rolling stock, including the Christmas Train. Yes, it is the Toronto classification yard.

I also have a huge collection of 35mm photos that I will be scanning into my computer for post. I also have quite a few of steam engines including the N&W 611 under power, and the Nickel Plate 765 Berkshire undergoing her latest overhaul. Including videos of her trials.

Stay tuned for more stuff. If you have any requests, let me know and I will see what I have.

Ahhh, TwoRail is that your backyard? :laugh:
LOL actually.. This is close to my house.. I sometime stop on my bike or driving my car and watch the marshalling operations.. you can't see it in the photo but there is a large hump they send the rolling stock down one at a time to assemble their trains. It's really awesome to watch.

Stanly Cup in NC, Never say never!


My dogs in my back yard. rare but true.:eek:
Interesting! Back in the 80's I rode to Florida with my brother. We went through a storm on the coast. By the time we got to Gainsville we had 6 inches of snow on the bug. LOL

This is an old thread but if you still have more of the pics of this yard I'd love to see them. Especially any that show the locos. Pete
