  • So here is what Leland gave me today (I know others got the ball rolling on this as well)

    R6 to R11 20 MPH Limit

    R1 to R5 10 MPH Limit

      R6 through R11 is 25mph.

      Also note that R11 is next to R1 on the North side.

    • Damm I gotta make a map for that.

      Thanks for sharing

    • OK here is a map I'm working on.  There are some places in this I may be wrong on or don't understand where exactly it is.  If you can verify for me it would be appreciated.  Just click on it if you want to see what it looks like at the east side.

      I am reviewing the Barstow yard BNSF Info and find some additions. I am going slowly one change at a time.

      The Cajon Receiving entry track is 25 mph all the way to the receiving yard tracks 6 - 10.

      The Mojave Receiving entry track is 25 MPH all the way to Receiving 11.

      The Crossovers between Cajon Rec entry and Mojave Rec entry is 25mph. (near fueling track entry).

      The EE (East End) of the Receiver tracks 1 - 5 is 10mph. From R11 to the Hump Lead.

      The next change is based on the First St. Bridge that is referenced in the BNSF TT. The Yard Entry Track from the First St Bridge to WJ Junction coming from the Needles Sub is 25MPH. Restating: The Yard Entry track from the Mains is 50mph until the First St Bridge (near the West End of AMTRAK Station) then it reduces to 25mph to WJ Jct.

      This leads to something that I am not completely sure of. The High Lead and the Low Lead from the Needles Yard Entry are referenced in the TT's.

      I am confident that the High Lead is the track that I described in the preceeding reply. The Low Lead from the First St Bridge is either not represented in Run8 or it is the lower track that goes to Local Yard near WJ Jct from under the Hump on the 25mph Low Lead all ready defined at WJ Jct.

      If it goes from the Yard Entry from Needles, through Local Yard, and joins the Low Lead near WJ Jct the speed on that track from the First St. Bridge is 15mph.

      I hope that description is clear.

      There is another track called the Pull Back Track at MP 2.6 on the Cajon Sub (near West D Yard WE) that I have no idea of it's location. It is 15mph if anyone can figure it out.

      Some speculation: It could be the long track to the West of the Balloon Track that goes to R11 between the Shop and Fuel areas and the Departure Tracks. That would make sense as a track used to make up trains on the departure tracks. Or to pull back cars to the Receiving yard for re humping.

    • Thanks I'll have to take a look at all that eventually.  I see where some of the changes are necessary for sure.  I'm not going to get to that tonight, perhaps tomorrow and I'll upload an updated map.

      Re reading my post on the High Lead and the Low Lead I see I have said Old Yard when I meant Local Yard. I apologize if there is any confusion.

      I have changed the post.

    • I should of got you to do the map for us :)  I'll have to put this on the back burner for a bit.  I'll add it to the ToDo list and link this conversation as well

      I tried to modify your map but couldn't figure out how to do it.

    • Should be able to do it in Paint.

      Some cases the fill works good, in others you have to draw a new line over it.  I also had to use the color picker to draw lines through their track lines so that I could use fill without filling too much if that makes sense.  Fill doesn't work on all lines for some reason (I assume it has some kind of shadowing in the track lines in places).

      The original screen shot was taken from the External Dispatcher for Barstow.
