More Crossovers...

Hi All,

In our last update I showed a #8 crossover that we installed in the north intermodal siding, which also included a #6 crossover from the south intermodal siding to the mainline.

These have worked very well and after a little ops session the other night I decided that I needed another crossover from the south side "Oil Transfer Terminal" siding back onto the mainline.

I had two Peco "Electrofrog" turnouts that I got by mistake and decided to use these, they have been placed leading from the south siding heading back east onto the mainline.  They are located to the east of the newly installed crossover from the intermodal terminal.



One little word of advice to, when using Peco "Electrofrog" turnouts make sure you cut the isolation gaps for the frog before you turn the track power back on!  Lots of really bright lights coming from under the deck from the Short Management Devices......

This has added to the operational potential of the area by allowing motive power to enter & exit the sidings back to main without having to traverse the enter siding length.  Now all I have to do is install the turnout motors to 9 turnouts, more wiring...

Jas...
