Short local spotted on new siding...

For all of those following along with this build, here is a short local consisting of 2 x 54' Gondolas, 2 x Covered Hoppers, 2 x Tank Cars and 2 x 50' Box Cars.  This has been spotted in the new siding.
The local including GP35 & Caboose just reach outside this siding on both ends, but this is fixed by performing a run around with locomotive & caboose and reversing the entire local backwards towards the west and removing the two gondolas and spotting them into the sheet metal siding.
The next shot shows the remaining local (with two gondolas removed) in the next track in which is the L&T main presently, this could also be used to store the local until it is broken down.  This also allows the new siding to be used as the main and gives that buffer to the fron of the fascia.
The little ops session I ran just then testing it all out was great, really adds another level by bringing the local in, and still allows operations on other sections to continue.
