Chuck calls this self-portrait, Rock Garden Shadow
I saw this the other day by my house in the NEW switching and storage yard by my house. I was going to snap some photos, but Chuck beat me to it;
Here’s a couple recent photos taken near your place.
It shows military tracked cranes.
In my love of trains, seeing military equipment on rail cars is an added bonus.
I refer this area south of 14th Street as the south rail yard.
Don’t know what BNSF calls it.
I suspect this area will see more activity after the downtown yard removal.
Yeah, you are not kidding. (click to enlarge)
Here are photos I shot in 1964 of the downtown Sioux Falls rail yard.Â I was in 9th grade at the time.Â These were shot with a Kodak Brownie Starflash 127 so the resolution is not real good.Â The rail yard was a busy place in those days.Â Watching the action was exciting. At this time there was only the 10th street viaduct.Â – Charles Luden
