    After making a turn to Galloway, geep 582 has just passed Pacific St Jct, and it is on the 43 track as it makes it way back to the West Yard. March 1975

    Karl, or anyone else,

    I just want to verify I have the track labeling correct here.

    My understanding is that 43 track is the westbound connection between the middle belt and the mainline in the north yard area. Is that correct?

    I'm trying to reconcile that label with a 1998 BNSF track chart for the Kissick ( Ozark ) branch that shows the pine Street junction and MK junction area ( including the MNA/UPRR/MoPac connection ) and labels that drawing "43 Track, MO".

    Other track charts in the 1998 collection do label the connection at north yard as 43 Track.

    Paul,

    I started the attached document earlier this year, but didn't finish it. Here's a look at the Eastern Junction - Old East Belt- Pacific Street Junction Area. Like it did with the MK Junction Area, during the mid-1970's, the Frisco rationalized the track and signal arrangement at Eastern Junction. In doing so it created "true" double track between the New East Belt and the Kansas Street (West) Yards.

    Thanks Karl!

    Incidentally, there was a picture showing one of those spring switch indicators posted to the Frisco Archives earlier this year:

    ( though that was on the other side of the Anheuser Busch elevator).
