West Side Intermodal Yard
Here is the new West Side Intermodal Yard. It is in the downtown area. Squeezing many buildings together in a small space with several cars and trucks works well for creating an urban setting in a small space. The double tracks can hold ten 89' flatcars or even more doublestacks or impact spine cars, while the actual modeled part of the yard is only a couple of feet.
A constant line of trucks around the clock makes this a busy place.
The maintenance shed is located at the east end of the yard. It services the lifts and the yard tractors. There are several dock workers operating the lifts, directing traffic and even on lunch break. This is not a ghost town.
This lift quickly and easily loads either containers or trailers.
This leased cab over is hooked up to a container trailer from Asia.
Independent owner operators pick up and deliver trailers to local businesses.
The trucks are all detailed and must either have a driver inside the cab or near by.
Notice the weathering on the container.
This old beer belly is directing the drivers.
This truck is ready and waiting to pick up a trailer.
A special Trailer Train flatcar can hold 3 UPS trailers.
