Do you know about when they were scrapped?

Google Earth History shows them there in the earth scan of April 2013 , both wreckers gone in the next earth scan of March 2015 . I was told by a couple of CN engineers that regularly go by the place that the two cranes were still there in 2017. When I checked it out, I realized the cranes they saw were two monitor cab locomotive cranes . To an untrained eye a " crane is a crane is a crane". The saleman there said both wreckers were long gone . Sorry ,I didn't ask the date they were cut . Just looking for axle sets at the time .

Mark.

Mark,

You mentioned "Google Earth History", how dose one find that? If the cranes were gone in a 2015 scan why does the scan I get still show them? Doesn't Google Earth always show the latest view?

John,
Google Earth Pro, which is still available for download, has a time slider that in most cases can take you back to about 1994. Resolutions vary on the aerials. I don't think the current mobile version has that feature. At least I haven't found it yet.
