It is not my purpose to document this train yard. It is my purpose to convey feeling by using significantly reduced saturation, textures on some, texture and monochrome on others. All photos except the one above can be enlarged to full size by clicking on them.
My father spent most of his working life as a Railroad man for the Southern Pacific RR and therefore anything railroad related has a very special place in my heart. This is kind of a continuation of a post last week that you can see by clicking here.
Helper got it's name because it is at the bottom of a long canyon with a fairly steep climb and the trains pick up "Helper" engines to get the loaded trains up that hill.
