A Gray Day by the Railroad Tracks on the Northwest Coast

This late 1930s vintage photo, shows us cars parked around the railroad tracks, near ship yards somewhere on the Northwest Coast. The setting gives us a representative view of what was on the road back then, near the end of the Great Depression. One of the the oldest cars appears to be Model A Fords.

  1. Would anyone know why the track appears to have “double rails”? Like two rails in parallel, on each side of the track.

    I don’t recall seeing that before.
    Thanks.
