Alex, All,

Thanks for the information.  On the attached map of the stretch below the
powerhouse at Switchback, I have attempted to "overlay" the old main (in
blue) and the branches/spurs/sidings (in red).  Would very much appreciate
it if you could take a look and feedback corrections, additions and

Thanks again,
Jim Cochran
