The switch is Peco's new UniFrog design and is their first in the Code 83-American design turnouts.
The switch will connect the storage tracks that serve the Hershey Chocolate silos & main plant. Previously these tracks were not connected to the tracks on the south side and it would have tied up the mainline switching cars with the existing setup. The mainline is highlighted in blue, the new crossover incorporating the new double slip is in yellow, and the storage tracks that serve Hershey or are used to switch cars to Hershey are in white.
New setup will allow greater flexibility for operations and will allow the Hershey Plant to operate at its full potential.
