On the left is a view looking west at the diesel servicing facilities at the Lindenwood Yard in Saint Louis MO in July, 1979. In the center is the fueling facility with a sanding facility directly behind it. To the left is another sand tower where the distictive curved roofs of first generation EMD switchers can be seen huddled beneath it. Behind that is the Diesel house. To the right of the Diesel house is the turntable and the remnants of the roundhouse. On the right side of the picture, there seems to be an area to store damaged frieght cars. Notice the boxcar with no door and the gondola with no end. In the far background to the right is a glimpse of the ever-present natural gas storage tanks which still stand to this day. On the right is a contemporary view of this area which is now a container transfer facility for the BNSF. Photographs by Rich Lawler.
