May 14, 2014 - New Car Barn

The guys are making progress on the car barn as shown in the photo. The barn will have four tracks and is 80 feet long.

Remote Controlled Switches: We installed remote controls on the switches leading to Barney Yard tracks 2, 3 and 4. Westbound traffic will encounter this post at the north end of Barney Yard. The lower control selects between track 2 & 3 (left) or track 4 (right). The upper control selects between track 2 (left) or 3 (right). The controls are set to track 3 in the photo.

This photo shows one of the new switch machines. They are slow --- about 15 sections to transition. The controls should be operated from a stopped train.
