Throwback Thursday - Westbound at Hyde Park

Via 6789 is guiding train 71 through Hyde Park on January 08/89. 

By Peter Mumby.  

Via 6789 is guiding its westbound train through Hyde Park.  Just ahead of the locomotive is the turnout leading to the Hyde Park spur.  The unit's lead truck is currently on the west switch of the crossover ( note the reduced amount of ballast between the ties at this point ).  The shed on the south side of the right of way is for the convenience of a switch tender/operator who might periodically be assigned to this location in the event that one of the tracks is blocked to the east.  The temporary train order signal is turned away from the tracks, indicating that all is clear on this particular day.
