Nice ! There's a view you don't get to see very often.

Really! So they have been maintaining locos in a building with no roof? Interesting.

Am I seeing things or do I spy some type of model railroad track in the right corner ?

Looks like catwalk decking to me.

The black looking tracks are palets that new brake shoes are shipped on

This is the shop in Brewster, Ohio, right?  If so, good to know the building wasn't deemed unrepairable and torn down.

Interesting,the light colored #6984 looks real stubby, like it's been modified for some special or specific purpose.
Is there a smaller prime mover motor in there
Is it a kind of "yard goat"?
Thanks for the great picture, something you don't see every day, as they say.

It's a standard SD40-2, but the rest of the rear of the unit is blocked from view by the second floor balcony of the shop.
