I wrapped up the book this weekend. Now time to finish up some additional details on the layout and decide what to do next.

Out freaking standing

I've been going to San Pedro off and on for the last 63 years, You have really captured it

That first pic screams Alameda and Anaheim. Except the pavement, it's in too good shape. the real thing is still falling apart faster than they can patch it.

Most Trains out of the Harbor would have 4-6 locos on the point. In fact some have been 10,000-12,000 plus long requiring DPUs. But then your train could be a real hotshot for the Xmas rush. >)

This train is on Mormon Island. This is a dead end branch that gets smaller trains. I have seen consists with 1, 2 and 3 engines. The PHL usually runs one engine when working this area.

PHL trains run on very flat terrain so most times they don't need more than one maybe two locos. BNSF & UP have some major grades to climb out of LA plus many more grades before reaching their final destinations. So they require many more locos to get over those grades.

Here is a link to a video summary of the Port of Los Angels Layout project. I am currently adding a 4 foot extension to the far right, but this shows the completed portions. http://usmrr.blogspot.com/2016/08/a-video-summary-of-port-of-los-angeles.html
