Fred Mohr Your at the south end of 12st Yard on the turntable leads. 16th St Tower is behind and to the left after you across the "moat" of the CWI RR. Continental paper is the building in the background. The RS's are probably in commuter service and waiting to spin on the turntable.
You still can find part of the pit wall out there today.
Ron Wesolowski Fred Mohr is correct..at least one of the RS3 is a suburban service one...they had the hump on the long hood walkway
