A CN train just got routed on the Porter Branch at 7:20 PM presumably headed to Kirk Yard. I won't be able to see if they send it directly there from Tolleston

Had a lot of Potash cars on the end so it may be going to the IHB

That website image is from about 2017. A more current image can be seen through the Google Earth Pro program (dated Oct 2018).

Note that after the work completed last September/October the tracks on both sides of the CSX line line up (no offset) and the switch at the northwest end now has the NE quadrant connection on the diverging side of the switch (the non-diverging side directs trains to the uninstalled diamond).

CN's CP Dune (71034080050102) would be a good ATCS MCP to watch. If WG is raised while the switch is normal a train is coming off the NS connection. EG/NW would be raised for a train headed East toward Tolleston. If the switch is reversed the train would be going to or from the City Track.
