To get this picture I had walk up a gravel road on opposite of the Yukon river. The camera location allowed me to look down into Whitehorse. The two stall engine house is easy to see and in front of it you can see a pair of locomotives (WP&Y 90 & 91) along with van #901. The side of the engine house looks black which it was at the time. A few years earlier two river boats had burned to the ground near the building & the heat from the fire 
allowed the stone granules to fall off the siding and leave a dull black surface. Also you can see a flat area between the shop area and the Yukon river. That was the site of the BYN CO. Whitehorse shipyards a subsidiary of the WP&Y.  The engine house has been relocated and there is almost no existing evidence that a railway existed in the area.
