The photos I’ve been posting lately were all taken along Beaverbrook Street in Moncton, New Brunswick. My curiousity about the area has inspired a bit of digging around to learn more about this particular spur and Moncton’s other industrial trackage. If I understand correctly, this spur is called the Franklin Spur. It’s a part of CN’s Gort Subdivision. With these two details discovered, I’m starting to discover all sorts of terrific photos and even some video shot along the spur.
Following is a terrific video shot on the Franklin Spur. Many of the things that I discovered over the weekend appear in this video. What was so great to see was how the crews worked the trackage along this spur. It is a terrific education in prototype practices in areas like this and many of these lessons I can apply to my layout.
