The ramp leads to a coal dump for the railroad.  This is an engine servicing facility.  Note the water tank beyond the end of the ramp; the coal chute which can be lowered over a tender on the left of the housing at the top of the ramp.  Note the fire barrels along the right of the ramp.  In the back ground on the left is a station with a train order signal.  On the right, it appears these are livestock pens most likely for loading cars.  There is another facility to the right of the ramp in the background that maybe a grain elevator or fuel tank.

Hi List Members,

What type of industry is this, at the inclined ramp, being served by steam era freight cars on the C&NW?
