Trains, Wonderful Trains

Railyard Revelation

This evening when Lisa and went for a walk after dinner, we noted that the small two-track yard (called the "house tracks" from the days when they flanked Fernley's railroad station — the station has since been moved away from the railroad) was, for a change, empty. Because of that, we could see cars parked on the "pocket track" behind the Imerys Minerals diatomaceous earth plant. With no other equipment around, we went to have a look. We found more than we bargained for.

If I see one of the maintainers, I'll point them at what we saw in the yard and ask if they need to do something about it. I certainly don't want anything derailing in our yard, even at low speed, considering what some of those cars contain.
