This page will outline how the layout operates for a group running session.

Layout Operations:

The L&N RR mainline from West Knoxville Yard north through the towns of Oak Ridge (Not actually on the real Main line), La Follette and Morley. Oak Ridge has a few small rail served industries and a combined Passenger and Freight Depot. Just south of town a spur swings into the TVA Bull Run Power station. There is also a Limestone mine on the North end of the town loading both covered hoppers and Ballast cars. La Follette has 3 spurs for the local businesses and a track behind the depot keeps the Local crew reasonably busy. The next town heading north is Morely which has a small Cement plant and freight depot.  Just to the North of Morely I have included a Paper Mill on the edge of Hickory Creek. This generates plenty of traffic and has its own Company Switcher to service the facility. A Branch Line from Morely called the Clear Fork Branch serves the Coal mines.

Knoxville has 3 industrial areas: Neyland Drive south of the yard, West Knoxville with 2 spurs and on the North end of the yard there are two industries and an interchange with the Southern RR.

 At either end of the layout there are staging yards to terminate and originate the through traffic. These represent the yards of Corbin Ky in the North and Etowah Tn in the South.
