I'll help illustrate Joe's "form follows function" theme with these photos
of my recently-completed (and heavily-"protolanced") Binghamton yard. I
don't know what order these will appear in, but one series shows the
V-shaped sort-of compound ladder that forms the west end of the 6-track
classification yard, and the compound/pinwheel ladder in the shape of a
rounded, backwards F that forms the east end. It was designed to maximize
the length of the sidings. The east end uses three #8 curved and two #6
straight t/o's, the west uses two #8 and three #6's, all straight. On the
west end, the runner becomes the ladder track. Finally, just for fun, I
threw in a few photos of my kitbashed Walthers Kalmar sideloader. I
relocated the cab and tilt hydraulics, and added the trailer grapple arms to
make it more closely resemble a North American prototype, and it ended up
looking pretty close to a Taylor machine.
