Silicon Valley Lines: Layout Tour - Igo

Igo is a small block between Jacksonville and Hallelujah, and another bustling railroad town on the SVL. Igo has some light industrial sidings, but this area is difficult to switch because a crossing with a rival railroad prevents most trains from stopping in this area. Predatory pricing on freight service may soon put that other road out of business, which should make life easier for the SVL dispatcher.
