A week ago Bill posted another video by jitensya37 about Musashino Yard (link below), this one covers now and then aerial images of 31 yards from Goryokaku in Hokkaido to Kumamoto in Kyushu.

Hmmm the forum software makes an image out of that list... anywho...

 

It's very interesting how some have been preserved as 'freight terminals' losing only some of their tracks to paved areas for the container and lifts, while others are completely gone.

Nice. Interesting to see a number of good old turntables. Thanks

Containerisation removed the need for space.

Diesel/Electric removed the need to turn.

I wish I'd been able to watch it all happen... back then.
