 I originally had laid that south crossover turnout before building the
yard section. However, the grade of the yard caused the vertical height
difference from the main was too high.  So I had to compromise.  If I were
to do it over, I would have made the yard flatter so I could get that south
crossover in.  As it is now, a southbound train with a set-off runs around
the train and shoves the cut into the yard.
