Speaking of unreal trackwork, here's a 3 way switch w/ a couple other switches "squished' on top of it. and no they aren't slip switches as know some brakies who worked them. The are on the Los Angeles Junction Ry A Yard  in Vernon CA. Use "4320 Maywood Av 90058" to see them in Google &/or Bing aerials. They may be gone by now because BNSF the "owner" is redoing the yard. May have a 3 way on my LAY layout but not those other contraptions. LOL

Yeah, it is gone now, at least in Google Maps satellite view. You can still see its ghost though.

Here is a proper challenge to all "Crazy Track" fans :




For a full explanation, please contact Salada (Michael) -  replies containing folding money will receive preferential treatment.

Sorry about the quality - photographed by Salada from a museum original.

Clue : how many sets of tracks can you see ?.

Regards,         Michael

The 3 way switch still shows on Google & Bing aerials. It's just below the right end of the 5 sided building north of the yard. Need to enlarge it as much as possible to see it real good.
