Rotary du Jour (Again?! Yep)
Author: BoilingMan

True to plan, the UP is running the Rotary often in Clean Up Duty.  Today's mission was (IS: They're still out there as I post this)  Truckee-Shed 10-Truckee.   We had a nice sunny break between storms today, so I had a chance to fly as well as get some ground shots.  I flew at Norden, walked at Soda Springs.   I'll post my Cutting Room Floor shots later tonight or in the morning.  Here are my quick picks to post first:
SR 

Photos 1-3.  Rolling through Norden.

Photo 4.  Approaching Soda Springs
Photos 5&6.  Fisheye Fun.  The thing about seeing the Rotary so often is that I get to experiment a bit.  I mean, hey, they'll probably run again tomorrow, right?

Question from a stranger to those parts: in photo #v 2, the more distant Snow sheds appear to be abandoned. Is this the case? If so, what causes such abandonment?

Really enjoy, Boilingman, your contributions here I'd offer a wee tipple of single malt if I could. d

Fun Photos! Thanks.
Funny thing about snow, you bust your butt to move it out of the way and it seems after all that work a few days later Mother Nature comes along and melts it all leaving only small reminders of all that work you did!
Go

Second that motion! Just an outstanding set.

Let no good Rotary opportunity go unexploited!

There are many parts of this country where 1 cm of snow brings us to our knees too.

Oh, aye!  Laphroaig! 

Yes, Norden today is but a shadow of it's former glory.  It was originally a very busy place with a turntable, train order office, cookhouse, company housing, even a depot for skiers in the winter.  Today there's nobody there.  The sheds primarily protect the crossover switches.  Short sections of the 1 Track shed and the turntable lead still stand and are used mostly by the MoW Dept to stash equipment when they're working in the area.

I took the accompanying photo in the winter of 1984-85.  Most of the Norden complex still existed at the time.
