Working on the Shippensburg Classification Yard...

Working on the alterations to Shippensburg Classification Yard today, the changes will allow local freights to be made up from an arriving freight from “the rest of the world” via Staging.



There are two small three (3) track storage tracks so that freight can me sorted via either westbound and/or eastbound traffic onto the layout.  There are two yard leads within the middle of the yard allowing for continuous operations.



There is also the ability to make up outbound freight to either the “rest of the world” via staging direct, or via Rutherford Yard.  The added double track truss bridge now shifts the yard entrance to the south side of Harrisburg.



The classification yard also has the ability to allow through freight from staging direct to the layout without interfering with yard operations.  The addition of the extra long yard lead from the south side of Harrisburg also give the ability for the yard switcher to move bigger cuts of cars now too.
