    Sorry folks, the link that got me to the map is now getting me to a picture of a trolley, which I hadn't seen among the pics I've had a chance to view. Kinda neat though

    ---And yes, railroads have no desire to make the yard office attractive.

    It's all part of the current corporate mentality. Back in my Dad's time, guys were proud of their company. They went out of their way to make the place pleasant. Companies made the effort to improve conditions for their workers too. The unions and management worked out their differences and both sides worked to make things better and those companies did well. Today, it's all too often "us against them" and more often than not, the big companies get gobbled up by the bigger companies, and the bottom line becomes the only real consideration. It's no wonder that customers cast a jaundiced eye on the big, service oriented, companies.

    Appreciated, my friend. And yes, railroads have no desire to make the yard office attractive. One of our offices was so over run by spiders and flies, it gave me arachnophobia, lol.
