Side Tracked

This is the view from the East end of the Roseville rail yard. The whole town is cut in half by the largest rail switching yard west of the Rocky Mountains. Freight trains from east, west, north and south come through this huge yard to be distributed to all points.
In 1913, fruit shipping became an important part of the yard and the biggest ice plant in the world was built in Roseville to accommodate. The town is full of history which is fascinating to me. That’s a part of the old town in the background.
