Looking east at the former WM Thomas Yard. The second photo was taken from the Rt. 219 overpass in August 1993. I had been here just a year or two prior to the photo which I took and remember all the tracks were still in place, not sure when they were pulled up. (Ray Wongus Collection of the WMRHS)
