I played around tonight with operations. With all of the locations “set” and named, I decided to go ahead and get them configured in JMRI. It took a while defining each spur length, direction, etc. And then defining all of the locomotive and car data, again length and type etc. As you can see in this image, all worked out well, I have two locals built and ready to roll with their switch lists. The first and lost “yard” jobs wont really exist, since this starts and terminates in a hidden staging yard.
And a parting shot of the full yard. Starting at the left, a unit grain train, loaded OMAX coal train, two general freight trains, and finally the last two are the locals.
