IT's TEAM TRACK TUESDAY!!! Sept. 18, 2018 edition

IT's TEAM TRACK TUESDAY!!!  Share your team track photos here! 

Team tracks are a vital part of day to day real railroad operations.  Team tracks are found in remote rural locations, small towns, and large cities.  Most every type of freight car can be on/off loaded on a team track.  Certain passenger train head end cars and MOW equipment can also utilize the team track. 

Today on the Free State Junction Railway's team track one located in Lower Patsburg there's not a whole lot going on.  Two boxcars have been set out and are waiting for the entire team track unloading crew to show up.  A few of the crew have already arrived, however, the rest of the crew is still down at the Breakwind Chile Cafe finishing up lunch.  ( I weathered both of these Weaver boxcars several months ago)IMG_7597IMG_7593IMG_7598IMG_7596IMG_7595IMG_7608

Go ahead and post your railroad's team track photos.  Prototypical railroad photos are also welcome!  

Have a wonderful and fun week!  See ya next week on the TEAM TRACK! 

Cheers and Happy Railroading,

Thanks everyone for another rousing chorus of TEAM TRACK TUESDAY!!

Fred - That is one huge dozer blade.  Is it for a D9? 

56F100 -  Thanks for your thumbs up approval of both Switcher Saturday and TTT treads!  I'm sure Rich Murnane, of Switcher Saturday fame, will greatly appreciate your comment as do I !!

Bill T - nice locos!

DanielB - great looking TT track scenes! Got to love those Southern woodchip cars!

Brian - The single photo showing the rural team track is AMAZING!!  I also like the lumber loaded flat car photo!  The photo of transfer tracks I assume are the tracks leading from one yard to another ... over which freight cars are transferred? 

Mark - Even with your over the top busy schedule you managed to get some photos up on this week's TTT thread.  No worries about the repeat photos they look terrific!!  Hip hip hurray for the REA!!

Thanks to all who stopped by to take a gander of what happening on the TEAM TRACK!!  See you all next week and have a wonderfully fun and creative week!!

 

Cheers and Happy Railroading,

With regard to your question about the dozer blade I took the frame from the movie Big Trains Rolling which I think was made in 1955. The D9 was in its early stages in the mid 1950s so this could have been for an early D9.

I really enjoy this thread and I thank you for running it.
