|This view is looking west (rail north) over
Willis. This shows where the I.C. main will enter the visible
portion of the layout. The track from staging will come around
the curve at far center, aligned to that far switch. The
diverging route from the switch will be the passing siding.
The siding comes back to the main about where the photographer (me)
is standing (not where the closest switch is sitting). The
Louisiana Central mainline from Whitcomb will also enter this area
at the far left, then turn again on the single width of roadbed at
bottom left. Again, see the upper right portion of the
trackplan for a clearer explanation of what goes on here.
