You could park on 10th Ave and walk on the sidewalk on the 13th street "viaduct". It crosses over the entire rail yard and provides a view of all of it.
You could also turn off of Linwood Blvd onto 7th Ave and pull over and watch. The railroad property is posted and you will see no trespassing signs everywhere.

Norfolk Southern's office is on 6th ave between 12th and 13th streets.
