Looks like you have a nice large space for your layout! Is your last above post still your functioning plan?

Rustbelt,

This is the latest tweek of the track plan. The room is 13x22. Looks like yours is coming along nicely. Mine hasn't progressed passed paper.

There were two Ford plants located along the former C&O, the one at Sheldon Road, received Center Flow Hoppers and 86' Hi Cubed Boxcars. Just up the road east was the Livonia Transmission Plant, they received 50'-60' Boxcars and Tank Cars. As a side note, some of the parts shipped from Sheldon Road I believe made there way to the Ford Plant in Connersville, Indiana. Ford had a fleet of road trucks (Ford Aeromax Tractors) that shuttled back and forth from Connersville and Sheldon Rd. I am a truck driver and I've been to the transmission plant as well as the Sheldon Rd. plant; and I was to a warehouse just up the road from the Connersville plant, that received inbound empty racks that were shuttled to the plant by Ford. Also, there was a small, I believe a 5 track yard just outside of the Transmission plant, along with another yard to the west between I-275 and Haggerty Rd. The C&O had north and south sidings were the locals could service the industries without fouling the mains.
