The Juniata Rail Yards

As I said in the last post, the Juniata Rail Yards (Locomotive Shop?) are located in Altoona, PA and are a train fans dream.
 I'm not exactly sure how far they stretch because there weren't too many good places to look at the extent of them.  I did manage to find a bridge which is where I got these shots.
 It's pretty cool to find a place where trains stretch out as far as the eye (or camera) can see.  I'm not sure how many trains stage here, but it appears to be several.
 A couple of engines getting ready.
I watched this pair of engines as they were moved about the yard.

 If the other shot wasn't impressive enough.
