North American Railyards


North American Railyards

Railroad classification yards are sprawling, multi-acre facilities featuring miles of complex track and ‘sidings’ where rolling stock is dropped off, sorted, and otherwise switched from train to train before being sent off to its next destination. With the glory days of train passenger service and thus railroad terminals long gone, classification yards have become the focus of modern railroad operations. This comprehensive, illustrated guide is the definitive reference to major North American Railyards - more than 70 in all. Over the past 13 years the author has visited each yard gathering brief histories, operating data, information on unique characteristics, and photographs. In the relatively few cases in which yards have been downsized or closed, the author includes the most recent information.
