Workin' on the Railroad - here we go...!
Author: TheCurator

Let me be the first.

These guys were switching the Steelcare facility at the western end of CP's Aberdeen yard in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada back in '00.

These facilities (in this area CP has one, CN has two) handle steel coils from the local mills - they're brought in by truck and loaded onto coil cars. The Cando unit switches said cars in and out of the main building.

Trains have room for luggage, so the ads used to say. A car attendant uses the exterior luggage compartments on a superliner at Galesburg, IL. 9/29/07
