Visit to the Rail Yard

The rail yard is one of the last remaining structures of its kind in the country and sits on an enormous 20+ acre plot that comprises numerous buildings, all of which served specific purposes. It is so large that it had its own septic and water control and fire department. It's made recent cameos in Terminator: Salvation and The Avengers. We were fortunate enough to get a tour of one of Albuquerque's most iconic buildings.












Wood brick floors were used to soak up oil from the locomotives as they were being serviced and built


 


Demonstrating proper use of the many convenient outdoor urinals–no joke!




  
Lots of cool hand lettered signs
