    Gardner, MA July, 2004. Some of these old clunkers are still running.
    I think the average age of a Guilford locomotive is about 35 years.

    Our last camping week-end took us to the Bangor Maine area. While there, I had to visit Cole's Transportation Museum where, among lots of trucks, cars, and fire engines, they had on display a Bangor and Aroostook BL2, the American Railfan. And, of course, a trip to the Bangor area has to include a stop at the old Bangor and Aroostook Northern Maine Junction yard. Just a shadow of its former self, there wasn't much to see there but, I did find a Pan Am lash-up waiting to roll with a train. That's what's left of the old coaling tower in the background.

    Dick,

    Old Erie RR Bridge over Pennsylvania Turnpike 476
    Guess it would be too much of a pain to remove
    I`ll try to get some side shots next time, I`ll have to walk alongside the turnpike

    Easton WA.jpg Easton Station.jpg High Bridge.jpg Lester.jpg Cocolalla.jpg

    L to R Easton WA on the east side of Stampede Pass where the NP put the helpers on for the push over the top circa 1980
    NP Easton station pre 1970 BN merger
    High Bridge on the west side of the pass just before Lester
    NP station at Lester WA on the west side where they took the helpers off for the trip back
    MOOSE, you should know where this is. Cocolalla ID. below Sandpoint. Was this the last tank in Idaho? It was a sad day in the 80's when I saw this in a magazine on fire, as the demolition crew burnt this old NP tank to the ground. Everything above has long been gone except the bridge which is in use daily by the BNSF.

    I like those pics Michael! Particularly the high bridge....or is it a viaduct or trestle? (grin)

    Thanks for sharing.

    Looks like a fun place Jeff. I'm sure glad they saved that tower, it's a classic!

    I came back for Christmas of 1979 to my hometown of Yakima WA. and shot these. This is the second Northern Pacific station. This mainline signal was down by the roundhouse and was dismantled a year later along with the freight house. The station is now a bar and restraunt. More to follow...........

    I spent some time at lunch taking some pictures. Partly of the RJ Corman yard in town, partly another bridge for 16marvigj.

    There's a bunch in my Flicker Railfan Set. Here are some highlights.

    No, Virginia, you DON'T have to have bumpers at the end of your yard tracks.


    RJ, doing a little free advertising by leaving a freshly painted, clean boxcar in plain sight. I can't BELIEVE somebody hasn't tagged this thing (not that I condone such activity). To the left you can see the "sand train" being unloaded. I have a brief video of that, coming soon.


    The Norfolk Southern overpass at Manchester Street. It also crosses over an apparently relatively new RJ Corman branch line. Tracks are there, equipment is shiny, nothing shows on Google Maps.


    Here's a closeup of the North abutment and the underside of the bridge. You'll note that this looks REMARKABLY like the MicroEngineering deck bridge model.


    Here's the crossing gate for the branch line on Manchester Street. Yes, there are FOUR sets of lights on that thing.


    Here's a shot down the branch line. Note how NEW this track looks. Also note how shallow the flangeways are in the crossing. I'm going to go back and see just how sharp that kink at the end of the crossing is, or whether that's an illusion.


    Finally, here's a quick closeup of the grade crossing at Forbes St. just down the road. This is on the RJCC / CSX branch(?) line that connects Lexington and Louisville via Frankfort, as it leaves the yard in Lexington. Again, note how shallow the flangeways are. Chock full o' dirt, yet this track is in daily use.
    Never mistake a guy who talks a lot for a guy who has something to say...

    Northern Pacific roundhouse at Yakima WA cica 1969. This is where I reported to work at night for the switch job at the Boise Cascade sawmill. Nothing remains today except a small metal service shop and the yard office. I remember a wood coaling tower beyond the building in the last shot around 1950. I miss the good old days.

    The Black River Jct. interlocking tower was located 10 miles south of Seattle where the UP, in yellow, crossed over the NP double track mainline to Portland. This is also where the Milwaukee and the Pacific Coast Ry turned eastward (towards the bottom of the track diagram) The tower was gone by the early eighties but the track diagram was saved and is in the Snoqualmie Depot RR Museum.

    Carole and I took a drive up Steven's Pass last Tuesday, the route of the Great Northern east from Everett WA, and caught a couple of trains.
    This local switch job just set out a lone hopper at the elevator here in Monroe WA, hometown of Al Borlin from Tool Time.
    An empty grain train is just leaving the siding under the hiway overpass. This was the former location of the station at Scenic WA.

    I've got a ton of pictures, but you've got to show me some of yours too...........

    A little urban railroad work. It looks like they are using sectional track mixed with some flex track. May be a little of hand layed track, too.

    (The voices I hear in my head may not be real, but sometimes they come up with a good idea.)

    Have fun.

    Heres the "Christmas tree" of signals lining the North-South CSX Trackage at Marion, plus the new diamond added to the NS Sandusky to Columbus-CSX East-West line. You can also see the UTLX tank car plant yard where they build these fine pieces of rolling stock. Then I had found an old NO Tresspassing sign, posted by Conrail on the gate along the fence.
