Overview of the layout. The empty oatmeal containers will eventually become a rice mill. The operational idea is to build up trains in the yard on the right, travel to the left to switch the various industries, and then to return to the yard. Note that this is an older photo, as the yard on the right is pretty much finished now.
Left side close-up. This will become the industrial area. Placement of the structures is just temporary.
Arlen Yard is featured in the next few photos. This is along the right-hand side of the layout, and is a joint-MKT/TXS facility.
