Steve’s Western Pacific Layout
Salt Lake

The Western Pacific retained turntables into the diesel era as they ran A/B units that were required to be turned.

The Shell station and the Mustang Dinner are located at the departure end of the Rio Grande yard.

The railroad terminates at Salt Lake City. There are two yards located here, the Western Pacific and the Rio Grande. The WP yard has seven industries that are worked when breaking up inbound trains. Two trains are made up here bound for Oakland. The Rio Grande yard handles the passenger trains and all unit trains; no switch work is required in this yard.

Arnolds’ Drive Inn provides a neat place for the local teenagers to gather on Saturday nights.
