Firestone yard Akron Ohio

Post by stevej » Sun Nov 05, 2017 1:59 am

Having seen photos depicting the B&O CPL signals 1305.1 and 1305.2, I became interested in the potential bi-directional running.
I now possess the CSX New Castle sub track chart which shows these signals plus Firestone yard.
I am curious as to whether a westbound running on track number two could enter Firestone yard and then depart to continue west.
Or, if only east bound trains may access and depart this yard.
There seems to only be a dwarf CPL signal for east bound departure.
