(Satellite)Craig Hensley Photography posted three photos with the comment:CN Pontiac Terminal I really enjoy capturing yard shots with the drone, and while out in the Pontiac area I had to grab a shot of CN yard. The aerial perspective really defines the track and switch layout, and also highlights the relics from the past. I find it fascinating that throughout all the years of modernization, the coaling tower still stands on the far side of the yard. You can also see the remnants of the roundhouse and the turntable that is still there as well. Even though this yard may not seem busy, but I'm sure there is still plenty of rail traffic that cruises through coming out of Detroit.Tech: DJI Mavic Air 2sSymbol: N/AEngine/s: CN 5662 (EMD SD75I)Date: 5/30/21 4pmLocation: CN Pontiac Terminal, Pontiac, Michigan
Does the turntable still exist to turn locomotives? It is certainly not using stall tracks for storage since they have been removed.
