Waybills to Switch Lists to Train Orders
A large scale model railroad friend was asking me the other day how I keep track of car movements on my HO scale layout.
In this image of Maine Central's "Oil Can" arriving town on a slow order in front of the station you can see another spur to the left where a reefer is spotted in the distance. This siding penetrates between two buildings and houses two industries, Scodras Grocers and Wingate Wholesalers. The boxcar to the lower right is on another spur housing the freight shed, a team track and a creamery.
This image is in the opposing direction of the preceding one. There is that boxcar at the freight shed to the lower left.
The Alco switcher has just travelled past the freight shed and dropped off the flat with tractors at the team track. The creamery is the grey building nearly out of sight to the right.
