|Park City Yard|
Technical details: track is code 83 flex track. Turnouts are from a variety of manufactures. Uncoupling ramps are included in all stub end sidings but not on through tracks.Turnout control is with Caboose Hobbies hand throws. Park City is a bit difficult to reach so these will probably be replaced by Tortoise machines in the future.
|Ascape Engine Terminal|
Engine Terminal. The Ascape engine terminal is the primary servicing location on the railroad. It is accessed directly from the mail line as shown in the lower left of the photograph. This track then divides into two tracks on either side of the coal, sand, water, and oil facilities. Both tracks lead to the turn table beyond the service facilities. A round house is under construction and will be located beyond the turntable in the upper part of the picture beyond the engine facilities. The track to the right in the picture is the drill track with the first couple of turnouts in the classification ladder showing. There is a crossover just this side of the coal tipple. This allows locomotives arriving from the East to pull into the drill track, uncouple their train and then move beyond the coal tipple, drop their ashes in the ash pit, and pull onto the turntable for servicing in the round house. The switcher locomotive, that is usually positioned at the end of the drill track, can then sort the incoming traffic into the classification yard.
