Exploring Selkirk
Produced in 1998


The photos below are actual captures from the program!

It's the Railroad Hub of the Northeast, with lines from New York & New Jersey to the South, New England to the east, and Chicago & the interim  cities to the west. Over 75 trains daily originate, terminate, or pass through Selkirk Yard.  Selkirk features a hump & classification yard that handles up to 2,700 cars a day, a major locomotive facility, car shops, and an automobile
off-loading facility. This program gives you numerous & detailed views of the yard, plus many lineside action shots from the Boston Line,as far east as the State Line Tunnel,
the River Line as far south as Ravena, and the Chicago Line as far west as Rotterdam Junction.

When we filmed in the late 1990's,  Selkirk & vicinity was becoming even more interesting with lots of foreign power showing up, and you'll see plenty in this program!  Informative, but minimal narration will give you the facts & figures, and brief on-screen graphics will identify almost all trains and their locations.  Selkirk Yard is a flourishing & vital operation!


  Highlights of this program include...

* Foreign Power in the Conrail era!
* "Inside" shots from the Hump Tower, dispatching center, and engine shops!
