Remarks & Notes 
We get a bird eye view of NS AC27 as the pair of motors are putting it's train together to take to the customer. As soon as that task is complete, the pair of SD's will build NS AC50 train for Monday. This is the north-end of Debutts Yard the 2nd busiest Classification Yard on the Norfolk Southern System. When this Yard was opened in 1955 it was to replace the small Citco Yard. Here a layout description of the north-end of the yard. We have the local yard which is in the foreground where AC27 is working on the far left behind the the Local Yard id the forward yard or departure yard, where cars from the bowl is blocked together for departure trains, The class bowl which is in the center, and the arrival/departure track on the west-side of the yard. This around the clock chaotic scene is where trains are built and depart for places like the Atlantic Coast, Midwest, Northeast, and Deep South depart here. Fun Fact: If the record stand this Classification Yard handles 2,500+ cars a day, and has a total of 100+ miles of track in this several mile location.
