Aluminum Pile at the Metal Recycler Site
After having some success a couple of weeks ago upgrading the area of the scrap steel pile at the recycler site, I thought I'd best get busy and follow up with similar work around the non-ferrous metal pile as well. Below is a couple of "before" looks at the aluminum pile and the surrounding area.

The Ground at the Scrap Metal Recycler
3 weeks ago, I posted this same picture (below) featuring my pair of GTW GP38-2's switching at MidWest Plastics. What was interesting to me though was that 2 readers, Ken and DandH, left comments focusing on the metal recycler industry in the foreground.
Both felt that the ground surrounding the pile was too neat and square. Well, in all honesty, they weren't wrong. Note how "squared off" the scrap pile appears.
