    Classification yard performance has a direct impact on network velocity and efficiency. RailComm has a long history of implementing solutions for yard automation. Today, its technology ranges from its first standard switch machine remote control to its current automation of yard ladders using remote control from a central location, to local. GE Transportation has created Yard Planner System, an advanced software solution designed to provide real-time planning and optimization of a rail classification yard. Yard Planner is part of GE's.

    Bailey Yard is the world’s largest railroad classification nel there sort, service and repair locomotives and cars headed all across North America. Owned and operated by the Union Pacific Railroad (UP), Bailey Yard is located in North Platte, yard is named after former Union Pacific president Edd H. Bailey. Marshaling yard, also called classification yard, fan-shaped network of tracks and switches where railroad cars are sorted and made up into trains for their respective destinations. An incoming freight train, or a collection of cars from local shippers, is pushed up an incline called the hump. Once over the hump, a car or a “cut” of several cars with the same destination is uncoupled from.

    effectiveness of classification yard (hump yard or flat yard) design and engineering and thus, ultimately, the ability of yards to process cars. An output of the project will be a manual of practical guidelines, procedures, and principles of yard design, accompanied by a sufficiency of data, tables, and computer pro grams.   The Union Pacific rail yard in North Platte, Neb., is seen from the air on Aug. 21, The Guinness Book of World Records recognizes it as the largest rail yard in the world.

INTRODUCTION. Classification yard design and freight car performance were the major topics of the TRB Classification Yard Workshop. Deregulation and the impact of railroad mergers have affected freight traffic by car type and have.

In simple terms, 'Classification' is the sorting of railroad freight cars into groups bound for one or more similar destinations. This is the most common type of yard found on model railroads, and when well executed, is fascinating to operate.

How Classification Yards Work Let's start by looking at the make up of real classification yards. paper proposes the layouts designed for the reconstruction of the existing classification yard and the construction of a new rail-road transshipment yard.

Keywords: railway freight yards, layout designing, intermodal transportation technology 1. INTRODUCTION The accomplished transport service in railways can be achieved through the conventional. In terms of layout railroad yards are either double-ended, which means a train can enter the yard at one end and exit from the other or stub-ended which means the yard has no exit.

Obviously, the double-ended yard is much more efficient and most classification yards of any size are of this type. With the glory days of train passenger service and thus railroad terminals long gone, classification yards have become the focus of modern railroad comprehensive, illustrated guide is the definitive reference to major North American railyards - more than 70 in s: Get this from a library.

You may have known that Nebraska has a special relationship with the railroads – Union Pacific is headquartered here and many of our little towns across the state were deliberately established right along the route of the tracks.Kalmbach has published a pretty good soft cover book on the subject.

Briefly, a freight yard is a place to sort cars. There are lots of reasons a railroad might want to do that, and each yard is tailored to the needs of the operating railroad. In the classic years, a railroad would have major classification yards wherever two Divisions met.
