Argentine yard plan:
We then went up the tall tower. Great views of the yard with switching going on.
There are so many pigeons due to the grain cars.
We drove along the hump yard to the top of the hump. There were so many cars from brand new shiny tank cars (but still with rusty wheels and couplers) through to mystery wrapped cars with draw bars.
Top of the hump but no cars rolling:
We then drove over to the motor depot via the fuelling lines.
The motor depot has loads of locos! Argentine is 8 miles long by half a mile wide.
We finally went out via the third yard office over to the old Kansas City Terminal roundhouse, now offices. One factory nearby had a groovy airplane stuck up above it.
