It's the Railroad Hub of the
Northeast, with lines from New York & New Jersey to the South, New England
to the east, and Chicago & the interim cities to the west. Over 75 trains daily
or pass through Selkirk Yard. Selkirk features a hump & classification yard that
handles up to 2,700 cars a day,
a major locomotive facility, car shops, and an automobile
off-loading facility. This
gives you numerous &
detailed views of the yard, plus many lineside action shots from the Boston Line,as far
east as the State Line Tunnel,
the River Line as far south as Ravena, and the Chicago Line as far west as Rotterdam
When we filmed in the late 1990's, Selkirk & vicinity
was becoming even more interesting with lots of foreign
and you'll see plenty in this program! Informative, but minimal narration will give you the
facts & figures, and brief on-screen graphics will identify almost all trains and
their locations. Selkirk Yard is a flourishing & vital operation!
