An airport that I fly out of! There better not be any drones over the yard.

As Neil Young said, "Everybody knows this is nowhere." Too bad.

Went by the other weekend, so strange to see it like that now.
I don't get to get over that way as much as before, can someone give some arrival/departure times there?

Bringing this thread back to the top in the hopes that someone will post a reply or send a PM instead of just looking.
Still trying to get a sense of a weekly "schedule" for Selkirk inbound/outbound.
Would also like to know useful radio frequencies for the yard, and outlying areas if there are detectors that can be picked up.
Again, thanks much for those who can assist.

I was also looking for a weekly schedule for the Selkirk area.

I have the radio freqs on my website, http://railroad.docsteve.com/

There aren't any detectors right near the yard, the closest I can think of is at CP-VO

Thanks, I'll look at that later. A buddy sent me a link to a live feed from Selkirk yard, covers the hump and some other limited areas. Anyway, listening to it you can occassionally hear a detector...?

There is one on the east side of the Smith (Hudson River) Bridge, and one heading south on the River Line, Ravena I think, so perhaps its one of them -- can you get the ID on it?
