Hi Craig and List Members,
 
Craig, you are refering to this image I believe...
 
 
I like the fact that one can zoom in a whole lot for some very nice detail viewing.
 
Note in the above image the roundhouse, with the locomotives all positioned with the front facing toward the turntable. We mostly see these views with the front of the locomotive facing AWAY from the turntable... I wonder if this was normal practice or was done for the benefit of the photograph.

Claus, Thanks in particular for the photo of the string of 28' UP Boxcars. This is very helpful to me!
