Hi,

Do you know of any sites that give actual routes and layouts of real
switching yards.  I'm looking for layout ideas from the real world of
trains.

Thanks!

Drew

Try this link on Keith Williams' unofficial D&RGW web page:
http://www.sound.net/~drgw/facility/roper.htm

This has a description of the operation of a real yard on the Rio Grande
Railroad in Salt Lake City. It includes a hot link to a map of the yard.
