The Soo Twin Cities Lines is an HO layout set in 1959 and
focusing on the traffic that moved between the Soo's main yard at
Shoreham (Minneapolis) and the industries, freight house, and
transfer to other RRs located in the reciprocal switch district of
St. Paul, MN. The 25'-long 7th St. yard is an actual 1:87 version of
the Soo's now-defunct property (flipped E/W so it will fit naturally
in my space). Mine is a small layout, but we therefore incorporate
some aspects of yard operations usually not included on most larger
layouts. I have devised a system using prototype-facsimile waybills
that relies on the Yardmaster to make a lot of car-by-car routing
decisions based on car service rules. I have also incorporated
operations at a small city freight house, handling 30-40 cars per

no control over the content of these sites, but believe they will be of interest.
