    This yard here is one place they are built, no idea where they are taken apart, the Manlius yard is literally miles long and have the over head "crane" system to load & unload those containers.

    How about 0-27 Layouts? A Snow Day & Work In Progress Or " ALCO's Anonymous "

    Snow put a stop to logging operations so had to be in the house.... started by watching my favorite train YouTube channel. Then thinking about now being able to just "put another log in the fire". ONE of those videos from my "favorite train channel" inspired this :)
