Description

Looks like an awful lot of room, but big yards attract traffic and traffic in modern times is carried in longer and longer cars, so that what in the beginning was plentiful class yard capacity at Elkhart changed later to adequate and more recently to strained. In fact, a project has been developed to extend group seven (in line with the camera) out to the westbound departure yard, but though there has been general agreement as to its soundness, capital funds have not been available. This is the view toward the west from the retarder operator's quarters.
