Railyard Photos of the Past (Charles Luden) Part III

Here are photos I shot in 1964 of the downtown Sioux Falls rail yard.  I was in 9th grade at the time.  These were shot with a Kodak Brownie Starflash 127 so the resolution is not real good.  The rail yard was a busy place in those days.  Watching the action was exciting. At this time there was only the 10th street viaduct.  – Charles Luden

I hope all of the iconic historic buildings in that area are preserved. Like the BNSF depot, BNSF freight warehouse with dock, and the Fernson building as examples. I am also thankful that the old Chicago NW partial roundhouse near 6th and Weber was saved. It is the only example or remaining example of a railroad roundhouse in Sioux Falls…

Black and white is stark but you don’t have to color between the lines.
