The CRD backbar Phase II parking lane

Two Views of the Line Above the CRD Backbar: (click either photo for larger view):

This was where the Phase II line started. I hung supports above the back bar and then set 1 X 6 or 1 X 8 painted boards on them for the track. At first I set up just one track. Then I concluded there was sufficient room to set up a parallel track for enhanced parking. Photo taken early 2009.

The two consists (series of freight or passenger cars attached to at least one locomotive) are backed in from the wye outside so that that are ready to be pulled forward out of the bar onto the mainline.
