Los Pinos & Alamosa - Track Planning

The temporary tracks were pull out in June/July, the old module tables removed.

First, re-plan the Los Pinos yard, combining proposed plan with experience from temporary tracks.

The yard will have a ‘by pass’ through track on the front side, then the Main and Passing track, and

4 yard spurs against wall. There will be a WYE on one end and engine house area. Below all this,

will be the lower, hidden storage tracks of Alamosa.  Four BIG balloon loops for parking trains.

Plans look good on paper, but change when construction

Seven tracks, the by-pass left, then Main and Passing, and 4 yard tracks on right
