Sign Board
Peterson Chemicals is a small, regional processing plant that follows the motto of the big boys: "Better living through chemistry". There are several private tracks so cars can be located at various places on the plant grounds. Old tracks leading to the rear of the facility have been abandoned.
Description & History
The picture shows where Red Caboose manual turnout throws were installed on this module. Those oversized throws have been removed and the turnouts have been replaced with Peco Electrofrogs. The rails near the front of the module on the track leading to the rear of the module have been trimmed and the rear tracks have been abandoned in place.
