Traffic Flow

With the completion of the Summit Subdivision, through traffic might have

increased significantly. Traffic from the east would arrive at Great Divide

via the Southern Pacific RR’s eastern link. This traffic would flow westward

over the Gorre & Daphetid and on to the west of Gorre via the Southern

Pacific RR’s link west of Gorre. Likewise, through traffic arriving from the

west at Gorre would flow eastward over the Gorre & Daphetid and on to the

east of Great Divide via the Southern Pacific RR’s link east of Great Divide.

New Convention

To accommodate this through traffic a new convention has been introduced

to the TrainPlayer scenarios. Destination to the west of Gorre have been

designated with an “X” in the car ID and a purple color block on the car

forwarding spreadsheet. Destinations to the east of Great Divide remain

designated with an “E” and a red color block on the car forwarding

spreadsheet. However, a new rule is also introduced.

New Rule

Cars with an X designation only travel over the Gorre & Daphetid RR from

east to west (i.e., westward) and return to Great Divide via running rights

on the Southern Pacific RR (i.e., via the cutoff). Cars with an E designation

only travel over the Gorre & Daphetid RR from west to east (i.e., eastward)

and return to Gorre via running rights on the Southern Pacific RR (i.e., via

the cutoff). This is made possible by the fact that no cars have both an X

and E designation in their car IDs.

In this way traffic is regulated over the Southern Pacific RR’s link (the

cutoff) between Great Divide and Gorre in a prototypical manner. While in

reality the cutoff forms a close loop by linking Great Divide with Gorre,

conceptually it represents two interchanges with the Southern Pacific RR,

one to the east of Great Divide and one to the west of Gorre.
