This is what it looked like in the 'glory' days for the railfans. The sprawling Chessie facilities at St. Thomas, as seen 44 years ago last month as of this posting. All gone now. Just empty shells of the past in an empty field. Lots of power and plenty of cabeese to be seen too. The green one on the end I think was a special Safety paint job. Someone in the know can enlighten us. Canadian flags overhead give this overall scene a nice touch.
