What I wouldn't have given to have a westbound come winding along the Eagle River here on the approach to east Belden! This is the view from the US-24 overpass high above the valley floor near Red Cliff.

Wonderful photos!  
Wish they could be placed side-by-side to see changes.  
Thank you both for posting them.

I just posted a picture recently on Trainorders.com that my dad took from just about this same perspective when the Redcliffe depot was still extant, this was probably about 1940 or so. I can still remember vividly, watching and hearing a couple of 3600's or a 4-8-4 and a 3600 down there from the US24 bridge. This is a fine picture that brings back some good old memories, thank you Kevin!
