Had last week off on vacation and 2 freinds come down to visit and help with layout so we moved Eugene staging out to garage and, in its place built Portland Industrial area. has 5 new industries, 17 new car spots in addition to Portland Grain.
Explosive growth in Portland industrial will served by locals. (see attached amended photo with industries and spot numbers).
think it will be fun. Biggest issue for Portland YM will be where to hold cars for local switcher. SP and SP&S share the trackage and on my model railroad, they will share the rights and work. work will be done by 2 tricks of 5-6 cars each. AM and PM.
Portland Grain will be served separately by grain train. should make for interestingswitching but doable because we tested it last week. whomever doing it will need to use the storage tracks (2).
