Servicing and Yard

The yard and servicing areas are still under construction.  The 6 stall roundhouse, machine shop, turntable, diesel fuel, sand house, water tank and ash pit have been completed. The roundhouse and machine shop are lighted with many interior details. Most of the buildings are Walthers kits. Major structures to be built include the coaling tower, freight house and ice house.

The 5 track, double ended yard adjoins the servicing area and the main line. A double crossover on the main line at either end allows yard access from any track.  A full length drill track loops around the roundhouse for switching without interference with main line operations; and a track at the back side allows a locomotive access to servicing without using the main line.
