Farragut yard

Farragut Yard (West 42nd Street) ~ an 0n30 micro-layout

Farragut is a district in a large east coast city in the USA. What you see is a cramped yard behind factories that front onto the surrounding streets. It was laid out in the horse and cart era but two factories are now served by rail. Squeezing a railroad in required some ingenious trackwork and the switchmen have been grumbling about it ever since. Jaxcilli Industries on the right requires a continual supply of boxcars. The Rehetorite Calcining Company Inc on the left receives ore and coke. The finished products are taken away in tankers. There’s more about this fiction on the display board.

In reality, I wanted to build an unusual switching (shunting) layout. Questions are welcome ~ as are ideas for other unusual switching layouts.
