The NFFT was right next to the EB yard, a stone's throw from the roundhouse.
(see attached plan) The receiving yard was between the roundhouse and the
NFFT yard tracks. My thought was that as reefers came in from the west to
the receiving yard, those destined for the NFFT would be pulled out and the
remainder made up for eastern movement (and re-iced). But, I just haven't
run across an icing facility (yet).
