Here as a view of the Intermodal part aand Sand transloading area of Taylor Yard.  This toward the north end of the yard, in a truth, probably the middle of the yard. It can be a busy place with all the tractor trailers coming in and out and containers too.   They have a gantry crane to unload the intermodal cars ... have not seen that used lately.

They finally got this bridge fixed.  It is about time.  The old one decayed so much they had to close it.  It sat for about 2 years while they lined up the contractors other stuff for the job.  The sad thing is the temporary road to bypass it was better they most current roads.

Perhaps we will see more traffic as sand trucks for the Marcellus Shale Gas Industry are loaded with sand from railroad hopper cars.
