At the Gravel Plant Switching Hopper Cars

Posted by steamage

This is the busiest  industry on the LA&SFV layout,, an operating gravel plant that loads hopper cars.  Visiting operators like to work this industry that really loads gravel (river sand) into hopper cars, The local freight then hauls and dumps the hoppers at another industrial spur elsewhere on the layout.  So far, there has never been an accident dumping a loaded gravel car along the right-of-way.
