Photo Questions in Lines South : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Joe, I wanted to give my opinion of the photo question you asked in the 3rd Qtr. Edition.

The bottom photo on page 27 I believe shows the steam locomotives headed East towards Yoeman Yard. I believe the building is Gary Telegraph Office located 275 feet East of the North (Gary) Wye Leg switch on the Mainline between Tampa Union Station and Yoeman. Gary telegraph office was located just East of the lead track coming out of Gary Shop. My VAL Map shows three tracks in front of Gary telegraph office with the top (third) track following the North wye leg into an industry. The bottom two tracks being the mainline.

I have no ideas about the top photo.

This is just my opinion and I'm sure this will open up into a large debate.
