How many people work there? I say this because on a visit to the abandon NH Maybrook yard a few years back I took a photo of a sign that said 1,100 people use to work here. I have the photo some where. So more than 1,100 people work at the yard in the video?

I visited this yard as a kid in the 1960s with my father. We even got a tour of the yard control tower. At the time, it was the largest classification yard in the world, and proudly announced that fact on a sign. At some point larger ones were built, and currently UP's Bailey Yard claims the title.

Today they'd probably run you out of there the moment you drove onto the property, LOL.
