Well the truth of that matter is - this is only about half of the actual picture in the book. I have this thing about posting others people's stuff. The best I could do is give Bernhart's book the credit and not steal his whole show, but when I saw it I had to pass it along to you.

SO my oooo-ahh on this photo is the loco cab sitting by the Baldwins, the tank cars at the oil tank and of course the relief train which shows a lot more in the book view.

I think in the ad that I just got for the next book in the series, he still lists books 5 and 6 as available. I think the Reading yard from Spring to Belt was book 5 (sorry I am at the office with no train brain here) These puppies are like a buck and a quarter each, but with valuation drawings and 1/4 mile sheets and a ton of pictures I think they are worth it... Some times he gets carried away with construction photos.... rebar only goes so far in the entertainment category, But nuggets like this one are - wow.
Like a bozo I stomped my feet at the price and didn't get in on Book 1, then after actually looking at book 2 I knew I made a mistake.
