I was the assistant yardmaster at Auville (via telephone and radio from
Wilcoe) in the late 70's. I believe I have some hand sketches of the yard
layout that I could scan and email to you. I have always thought Auville
would be a good candidate for a layout. The NW mainline was out beyond the
Tug River, across the wye. The Dry Fork branch line beside the yard would
be much easier to model, with trains of mty's, short loads and loads to
market coming and going from all directions. Give me an email address and
I will see what I can find.
