    Here's a good excuse for an around the wall layout that's prototypical.

    This is Santa Fe's (now BNSF) La Mirada CA "circle" switching area:

    Could be adapted to an around the wall layout w/ alot of selective

    compression. And if you like GP60Ms & wide vision "shoving

    platforms" this is your layout. This yard handles all the switching around La Mirada & Orange County. And yes the yard is on a grade.

    But alas the auto transfer yard & Nabisco are now gone.
