My recent Op Session gave me an opportunity to test drive my homebrew Car Card & Routing system. I designed my own car cards & waybills after reviewing several articles in MR that I had bookmarked over the years.
The colour coding for the blocking and HAZMAT designation all happens automatically, thanks to the conditional formatting features in MS Excel 2010.
The Car Orders fit in front of the card hiding the home routing info, but leaving the important car data.
Several car orders can be stored behind the car card in the sleeve to be swapped for future moves. Car Card Managment.xlsx (39kb) - This file contains sheets for the blocking codes, Car Card Template, and Waybill Template. Jul 31, 2008 - Planning the Next LayoutI am almost finished with the first Tam Valley RR so it is time to start thinking about the next one! Planning ProcessThe first thing I think of in building a new layout is what will the story of the layout be and what signature scenes will I model to tell this story.
Staging to represent the rest of the world including the division starting point Roseville. Colfax including the station and an interchange to the Nevada County narrow gauge railroad.
30" minimum radius, 36" minimum visible radius- I want to operate cab forwards and while they will go around 27" curves they look silly doing it. Lots of nicely painted backdrops - no scenes without a good backdrop for photography purposes.
Manual finger operated switches except for staging which will use tortoises with routing control.
My guess is that's the end of the yard at Forest Hills, adjacent to the intersection of Hyde Park Ave and Walk Hill St. The photo Paul posted is also one of only two locations where the Main Line tracks were on the surface for any distance.

I then created the card design in MS Excel and designed the cards to fit into standard baseball card sleeves. They became elevated about halfway down the carhouse between this location and Forest Hills Station. I can still remember going south bound to Sullivan and see them bringing the old trolly cars out on that little strip of land under the orange line tracks and burn then to get rid of everything but the metal. I was fascinated by those old Main Line el cars and I remember there was a 4 car set of 0900's that were more or less permanently parked in the back of the yard, with car number 1000 at the end of the train, the last of that series. They moved the spans from their perch over the street intact, and did the dirty work at the scrapyard. I definitely don't miss standing in Everett Station waiting for the Woodlawn bus and smelling the sulfur from Monsanto.Dave D. Sometimes on my travels between school in West Roxbury and home in Dorchester I would stop off to hang around the yard and watch trains pull in and out, etc. An unusual aspect of the project was that the wood (mostly creosoted ties) from the El was salvaged, not burned.
It sounded more like a ratchet.) Well, what pulls into Forest Hills outbound but a train of Wasons ! The layout has appeared in Model Railroad Craftsman, Model Railroader, and Allen Keller's Great Model Railroads Vol 48. Interestingly, the last roadway the el passed over before descending to the surface, was Chemical Lane, the access to the Everett Shops and Monsanto.
I expected it to be work equipment and just continue through but it stopped and took on passengers! Well, although sympathetic, Mom at the time didn't understand that this moment represented to me what to a wine connoisseur would have been to stumble onto J.Paul Getty's hidden reserve at a yard sale. The answer to the question can be found on Broadway near its intersection with Chemical Lane. Unfortunately I did not get the car numbers but I suspect by that time there were only the 6 of the older cars left so it was highly likely that it was that train that usually sat at Forest Hills. Well, to give her credit, she listened to my imploring to jump off the Pullman and wait for the Wason, but about ten seconds later we were in motion. That was a great trip running down to Forest Hills, made even better by the fact we ran express from Dudley to Forest Hills. From 1912 to 1917, the Shea Yard was used to store Elevated cars in what's now the Arborway yard. I wonder if that was the last revenue run of those old cars, and that perhaps they had a shortage of 01100's that morning and had resorted to dragging the 0900's out?I never knew that there had been another yard at Forest Hills.


I still haven't gotten over that one, and then in spite of being a BSRA member in the 70's, missed my opportunity for a Wason fan trip there also ! The sharpest curve on the line was just RR north of Sullivan Station, on the outbound track. That jog in the el structure always bothered me and I could never figure out what it was there for, now it is explained.Here is a bit of trivia about the El operation I was told by a motorman back then.
The Shea Yard got it's name from the previous owner of the property whom the West End Street Railway had purchased the property from in 1895.The Shea Yard was a long, five parallel-track yard located approximately where those idle PCC's were stored for many years. The marker lights on the end of the train could be changed to show yellow, green, or white. A few feet inbound out of Forest Hills, there was a ramp leading to an embankment which brought the El cars down into the Forest Hills Carhouse's Shea Yard. The Everett Extension was connected to the Main Line by extending two yard tracks across the river. Supposedly northbound, a Red light on the motorman's cab side meant Everett, Green meant Sullivan Square, and Yellow meant Atlantic Ave (which of course by then was no longer used). The Shea Yard's use for elevated cars was short lived however due to the built in hazards of having entrance and exit from the ramp leading directly into the active Main Line tracks, as well as the fear of a runaway train on the ramp while waiting for clearance to enter the Main Line. The west yard was Dorrance Street Yard, while the east yard through which the Main Line tracks passed was the Beacham Street Yard. Access to Dorrance Street Yard was via a switchback opposite the inbound Sullivan platform and a scissors crossover just to the west (RR north) of there.
I don't recall how long those indications were still used, I expect it had to do with the manual interlocking towers that were once used at various locations, to indicate to the towermen the train's destination, and fell out of use once the control of switching was centralized, whenever that was.Speaking of sharp curves, the S curve going inbound at Dudley was pretty sharp, there was a timer approaching it so trains had to reduce speed. It is interesting to wonder if perhaps during this time (from 1919-1922) if trolleys may have been towed on the Elevated as a direct route to the Everett Shops ?) In 1922, the Shea Ramp was removed. As an artifact, you could still see the girdered stub of the beginning of what was the Shea Ramp on the Elevated right up to the Elevated's end (see picture).
