My favourite place to watch trains on PEI was always Royalty Junction. This morning I took a look on the PEI Government’s Aerial Photo Library to see if they had any vintage shots over the junction showing it’s trackage in it’s series of 1935 photos.
Check this one out:
The first thing that caught my eye was how much more trackage there was at the Junction then. Both the Charlottetown and the Mount Stewart legs featured a lot more yard trackage. This would make a great feature on a model railway. I see the yard at the Charlottetown-end present but look at that much larger yard at the back of the wye. That’s new to me.
