    Musings -- This obviously for the new Chargers. Also whatever is pulling the Builder and Starlight. Any info yet on interior configuration ? Could it be that other agencies might send Chargers there ? Just a wild guess but if room for 2 tracks could hold 4 locos at a time.

    The drawing in the article shows two doors with tracks into a long narrow building. To me it looks like you could get three on each track with space left over. Then there is the non door side for inventory and shops.
