[Alco S-2] Springfield Freight: The Yard (WS)

This scenario begins where the story in the two-part Springfield Freight scenario ended. This part, however, puts you in charge of the yard switcher's crew that has been tasked to break up the long freight train that you brought to Springfield in the previous two parts. You'll even meet the two GP9s that have just split off from that train while you're waiting at the roundhouse for the tracks to clear.

An hour of very challenging switching awaits you as you break up the train and deliver the cars to their destinations all over Springfield Yard, the Freight House and the B&M Interchange. There is little hand holding here, though the conductor will occasionally offer a friendly hint. However, the task list (press the F1 key) should suffice on its own. Take your time, look around on the map. Plan your moves, there is more than one possible way to finish this scenario. And mind the brakes, especially at the beginning your train is very heavy, almost too heavy for your single S-2.

Have fun!

All in all, challenging and had to resort to scenario edit to verify instructions. But enjoyable none the less.

Resolved - Columbus if still struggling - probably same mistake as me,You need to drop of 5 wagons at BM Inter . If same mistake as me ,leave the three you have there, and go and fetch the two pipe containing wagons (17250 & 92612) from down by springfield 13 and add them to those two, i.e 5 to be left there.

Same problem as ....Columbus 3rd Jan 17 below. No matter where I stop on this siding. Not getting a green tick, albeit all other wagons in their correct placing.

I can't get past "Marshall cars 75764 to 73850 to BM Interchange." I think it's glitched.

Thanks a lot for sharing this sccenario, fantastic! I love when I have to figure out how to get things done without having every single instruction about where to drop and pick up the cars. I had to re-couple the empty gondolas to get them check out of the task list but hey, great job. 10/10. Can't wait for the sound bug to be fixed, I love the sound of this engine. Cheers :)
