ABC Wednesday: Y for Railyard
I am not sure if this is a rail yard, but I wanted to feature Queensland Australia. These photos were taken in Queensland. I watch the floods of Queensland and I remember when I was there this time last year.
A rail yard, or railroad yard, is a complex series of railroad tracks for storing, sorting, or loading/unloading, railroad cars and/or locomotives. Railroad yards have many tracks in parallel for keeping rolling stock stored off the mainline, so that they do not obstruct the flow of traffic.
