    This was a very interesting place to visit. If you have an antique steam engine, Pullman, or rail car that you'd like repaired, reconditioned, or restored, this is one of the few places in the United States that can handle the job. I took quite a few photos, so I'll be posting to this thread as I process them.

    That's very cool. Looking forward to more shots even though I don't have any trains that need repair.

    Where is this shop? Did you scare the cat away?

    Leather and velvet. Pretty opulent at the turn of the century..... the upper bunks are an upgrade.

    PS.... the smaller sink in the bottom left corner is strictly for spitting. One does not spit into the sink one washes his hands.

    Interesting shots, thanks for sharing.

    Also, couldn't help but wonder if the place 'gets a pass' from OSHA :)

    BNSF railroad operates a pretty big rail repair facility here. I have not been through there in many years, but I remember taking a tour as a kid. If you get a chance to see one it is a very interesting place to visit.

    Nice work as usual, Ted.

    It would be interesting to know how many miles some of the those cars/loco's have on them.
    Nice work Ted, thanks for sharing them.

    I had to delete a few of my Roundhouse photos since I'm being reported to Homeland Security for including some restricted backgrounds in the photos.

    I'm going to really dislike being water-boarded. :wtf:

    It was totally incidental. The area was included only because of the wide angle. I was shooting south, the restricted area was directly west. They should get a fence.
