Team tracks and transload facilities are an important part of day-to-day railroad operations.  They are found in rural countrysides, small towns, and large cities. These non-dedicated sidings do not serve any one specific industry such as a lumber yard, coal yard, etc. They are available for use by any local business as needed. Virtually all types of freight cars can be on/off loaded here.  Even MOW and some passenger train equipment might utilize a team track from time to time. 

From highly detailed layouts to simple loops of tinplate, this weekly thread is for everyone!

Join the fun, share what's being loaded, unloaded, parked, or exhibited on your sidings!

Just for fun, be sure to check out the team track on the real STRASBURG RAIL ROAD in Strasburg, Pennsylvania, and see all the transload freight that they handle on a day to day basis.  What's really cool are the two Virtual Railfan cameras on the S R R at East Strasburg and Leaman Place, Paradise, PA.  If you're lucky, perhaps their x-NYC SW8 Diesel Switcher will be down for servicing, and the interchange with Norfolk Southern at Leaman Plate will be handled by steam!  WOW!

Not only is the S R R the oldest shortline in America, it is truly the big little railroad that not only thinks it can, but it gets the job done professionally too!

PLEASE Pray for World Peace.  Our children and their children's children deserve nothing less!

Thank you.
