Once part of the previous SVL modular layout, Jacksonville continues around the lower level, and features a gravel pit, grain elevators, Kaw Valley Plastics, and a coal dock. As you can probably guess from those industries, most of SVL’s hopper cars tend to spend a fair amount of their useful lives either being picked up or set out in this area. A large passing track is also provided here to allow passenger trains to get by slow moving freights or locals.

As trains exit Jacksonville, they cross the majestic bridge and enter Jericho.
