Description: Tilley Yard South is a small switching yard set in Chicago. It is set around late November in 1956. Served by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad, the main customers are AJ Shipping and Tri State Milling. The A.T.S.F. piggyback service also operates from the yard, picking up and dropping off trailers for various customers. As you can see, the snow has started to set in, making a hard day's work just that little bit harder.

The layout was featured in the June 2016 edition of Continental Modeller.
