Oh my,......OH MY!!!  Goose, a million thank yous! I can't believe how much was left still in 1985. You have taken all the photos I wish I had taken. Can't wait for the tour to continue!

it is interesting to see that most of the CNR track arrangement stayed around right up to the mid 80s.
 
 
 
Dave do u happen to have any photos of the E&N yard as well?

Sorry Coast, I never did get around to doing a proper track set around the E&N yard area. I do have some pictures taken here and there over time that show track layout, removed switches etc. but not in the same style as the Store St. and CN track sets. The only other set I did was one at Youbou in 1985 from the end of track about a mile through town behind all the houses along the water.

Aaron,  there is definately enuff fotos on this board that showcase the e&n yard and honestly, it really hasnt changed very much at all over the last 50 years  with the exception of the lower harbor spurs and union pacific connection/barge slip. Ive got some e&n yard fotos  from around 89/ 90  that I will be uploading next week when I purchase my new printer/scanner.( goose inspired me for that!)

It would be great if you could post the photos of Youbou as well, when you have chance.
 
Thanks, Craig

Hi Craig,
 
I'll do the Youbou set after the CN set before I start going through everything else.

I was born and raised in Youbou.  I remember the trains coming in and would love to see the pictures

Thanks guys, I'm just glad I'm able to share all of this. Here's the second segment of the set moving through the yard and over the trestle. Once again, the standard view is north and any differences will be noted. I'll continue the numbering sequence from the last segment.
