    There's also some interesting work activity under the nearest tracks.

    It looks like those tracks are hanging over the trench without any visible support :eek: (at least from this angle and resolution).

    Looking closely I can see there are some temporary stringers and pile supports at each end.

    With all the construction equipment and workers on site, there probably are red boards and blue flags all over those tracks.

    Tank cars now?
    Back during my first time at Minot, 2002, in Gavin Yard, back before folks complained at folks wandering with cameras in yards... :confused::rolleyes:

    Oh, yeah. Really liked the vast collection of railroad china he had accumulated. Great place, he will be missed.

    Loved the Q's Silver fleet. As much as the NYC's Pacemaker fleet. (Sorry Jim.)

    Blankets and twine. They could have at least used duct tape!:D

    That's one cool tank car.

    Nice little joint. Plenty of interesting artifacts with lots of history behind them. Watermelon Campbell was fantastic with all his knowledge about each item. That guy has seen a lot of history through those eyes. I like that.

    I once worked as a security guard at a retirement home in Montreal, in the 1990s. It was really fun and educational listening to the stories of some of the residents, like one guy who remembered seeing Halley's comet in the sky in 1910 when he was 5 years old. Stories from people like that should be treasured. Like Watermelon Campbell.:)
