Photo Tour From North to South

Benning Yard (Staging)

Benning Yard
Benning Yard is in a room that formerly housed our boiler and hot water tank.

These photos were taken at the end of an operating session.

The back track holds the Pepco Coal Extra. The next track holds the TC (Twining City) Switch. The Santa Fe car is on the track that holds the Port Shepherd job.  The near track holds the U-Turn (Uniontown Turn).
