N.P.R. yard.

The Northern Pacific R.decided that their crews were taking too long to to switch their freight in the confines of the yard at Grants Pass, so they built a new interchange just out side the city. This yard will be used to drop off freight for the G.P.W. and to pick up freight going back to the N.P.R.
What the new track arrangement does is to make the layout one large folded dog bone. Which is great for continuous running. I will still operate it as a point to point layout. The N.P.R. will operate from Grants Pass to it's transfer yard which feeds Medford and Portland. The G.P.W will operate from Grants Pass to the Port.
The benchwork and track is completed, next wiring, oh the joy.
