The Melarkey Street / US 95 overpass in Winnemucca is intended to be the western exit from the layout for the Western Pacific line. From here the line enters the helix down to the staging yard. This is a common arrangement on model railroad layouts and in this case it resembles the prototype location. I have used this same setup just a few feet away with the Southern Pacific line exiting under the Interstate 80 overpass. I have never been entirely happy with the the way the WP track left the layout under the US 95 overpass in Winnemucca. I suspect this has kept me from really finishing the Winneumcca area.
The track in the foreground is the SP track which enters the helix at the Interstate 80 overpass.
This photo shows how it looks now. I am patching up the scenery and need to finish the bridge but already like this better.
