View of the ladder of tracks for the new intermodal yard taken from Raines Road overpass.

These views show the earth work that is required to turn this rolling hill area into a flat terminal for loading containers in well cars. One of the current cranes shows on the north end of the current tracks for loading containers.

Here we see the view of the new loading area from US78.

A supply of rail for the project is along the connecting track from the hump yard to the Shelby Main in the foreground. A set of CSX units sit on the new connector track.

The new Shelby Main for bypassing the hump yard, one time passenger main.

This project is so large that it has its own batch plant.
