Cedar Hill Yard was the main yard of the New Haven Railroad, and also among the largest yards built by any U.S. railroad. The whole complex served three mainlines (Shoreline, Airline, Springfield Line), consisted of several arrival and departure yards, two classification yards, an LCL terminal, a material storage yard, and various other facilities. It had almost two hundred yard tracks of a combined length of over 150 miles. Over ten thousand cars could be handled in it.
A few in-game screenshots, flying along the yard from northeast to southwest:
|A view of the northeastern entrance to the yard: material yard on the upper left, creosote (tie treatment) plant to the right. The tracks in the middle are the northbound departure tracks (to Hartford).|
|This view is a bit further west: in the center is the north- and eastbound classification yard. The stub tracks in the foreground are the coal storage tracks.|
