L&N'S STRAWBERRY YARD: WHAT MAKES IT RUN

Communication and signaling system of the Family Lines System's Louisville & Nashville, at Louisville, Ky. is described. The new yard occupies 357 acres on the southside of Louisville, and replaces five smaller flat classification yards which formerly served the area. It differs from other Family Lines Yards, and even from those of most other railroads, in that it is designed both to handle through trains and to serve as a large originating yard for about 350 area industrial shippers.
