It's TEAM TRACK TUESDAY!!! Post your team track photos here!
Team tracks are a vital part of day to day real railroad operations. Most every kind of freight car can be on/off loaded on team tracks. MOW equipment can be handled on a team track as can some passenger train head end equipment. Such is the case today on the Free State Junction Railways Team Track Four in Lower Patsburg .... a RPO car is being loaded with mail from USPS mail hauling contractors trucks. A Western Maryland local passenger train originates in Patsburg. In just over an hour, a WM BL2 will arrive at the team track with a coach and combine. The RPO car will be the third ( and final ) car in the consist. The Western Maryland only ran 2 -3 car trains.... all locals. I didn't need to do any weathering on this car for prototypically the WM kept all its passenger equipment sparkling.... which is kind of odd for a coal road with a fractional interest in passenger trains.
Remember, we'd love to see what's happening on your railroads' team track ( s ). All are welcome to participate.... from those with a simple loop of track with an undesignated siding to those with elaborately detailed museum quality layouts. Show us your team track action! Photos of real railroad team track operations are also most welcome!
