Heading west, we come fairly close to the edge of the yard.  Upper Bay resides in the background, and float bridge facilities are located at the end of the tracks.



Right before the float bridge facilities, the line splits in order to accommodate another set of tracks.  The float bridge can handle two railcars simultaneously for faster loading and unloading processes.



A view of the float bridge.  At the end of the float bridge resides a pillar that says "Caution: Shallow water. No diving".  I don't know who in their right mind would want to dive in to these waters to begin with, since the water has some old tires and garbage strewn in it, but I guess it pays to be safe!



Leaving the float bridge facility, a better look at the two tracks comes in to view.



Although tough to tell by viewing this picture, an old decrepit float bridge resides behind the fence.  The old wooden ties and planks are rapidly decaying in the water and on the shoreline.
