Yard Improvement

Our track building team recently completed a small project in Lindenwood Yard, designed to help improve traffic flow of trains passing through the yard property. The by-pass track, highlighted in yellow in the image, was extended beyond the crossover that links the two arrival & departure tracks. Previosuly, the by pass track turnout was located on the other side of this crossover (location marked by red arrow). This small modification allows traffic to pass through the yard with less impact on yard switching operations.

Saint Louis Lines Management is grateful to the crew members that suggested this improvement. Thank you Mr. White and Mr. Groves.
