In Roanoke, they are located on the Forwarding Yard ladder & its
derails, the Park Street ladder, the east end of the Empty Side ladder.
These are controlled by the Roanoke dispatcher. The Hump Tower controls
power switches for the Hump Yard and Rt.66 (going from the Receiving
Yard (Big Hopper Yard tracks 1 - 10) east to the Old Eastbound Main Line
just east of the hump on the south side. No big deal guys. Just like
putting remote power switches on your model railroad.
