Staging Yards Expanded
I decided to expand the length of both staging yards today in order to better handle longer trains on the Geneva Subdivision. Ended up adding 22 inches to both yards which will add about five cars to the storage capacity of the tracks. Not a real exciting project, but one that I wanted to do for some time now. Maximum storage length is about 44 coal cars with 3 locomotives. While most trains are shorter than this length, the expansion will give the railroad the ability tp handle the extra lengths when necessary.
