The tracks you may be refering to at Harrisburg,Pa are the tracks that serve Enola Yard.A B C D and G and the relay tracks K H G and F.Tracks D and G run out to CP Banks,G runs tangent to the river and leads to the relay tracks in the lower portion of Enola and spans the lenght of the yard. A and B start at CP Hip,and serve as leads to the Eastbound Receiving Yard as well as other areas of the yard.There is nothing unusual about these tracks really,like many places on the RR ,some locations used something other than numbers to identify a track.
