Well, February is a short month, so I thought that I would post a fairly broad theme to generate as many pictures as we can in the time we have.

As the title says, the theme is “yards and sidings”. Any pictures, either model or prototype, which feature scenes around a rail yard or siding are welcome!

I ask that you keep copyright issues in mind, as usual.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Let me kick it off.

Here is the coal dump siding at a creamery on Andy Clermont's Rutland RR.

Since I don't have a layout just yet, and only one siding, the choice was pretty easy! The Ericson's wharf siding with a reefer spotted for shipping lobsters:

Delaware and Hudson fans will like this shot showing the north and south sidings holding a couple of cars from this railroad on my B&M layout. The mainline curves through town at this juncture.



An aerial view showcases the Maine Central crew exchanging empties for loads in North Dover. The unit tank train has just come in to town from the interior of Maine where it's load helps keep the paper mill industry on the go.

Troels, top notch modeling and photography. I've had to look twice at a few of your pictures to see if they are models or prototype.

Bob, that is a great picture. Well done.

Wolsztyn, Poland, last June timeframe. I don't know if you can see it, but I love the tree growing up between the rails on the right hand side of the pic!
