Description:
A view of the Canadian National Railway yards as it appeared in 1935, looking east in Rainy River, Ontario. This is quite a contrast from today's local operation which handles tonnage far in excess of the 'steam engine' days, without the benefit of the shops, coal docks, turntable, freight shed, ice house, numerous tracks etc. The current operation requires only a fraction of the staff that would have been needed to maintain and operate the steamers back then.
