CHICAGO & NORTHWESTERN EAST 

(LUSK STAGING)

The CNW East is just a lead from Orin into a reverse loop with a four-track staging yard.

This line ran east through Lusk, WY and into Nebraska, connecting to the rest of the CNW system. 

I know very little about the traffic density on this line, but I suspect it was very light, with only Casper, Shoshoni, Riverton and Lander, one decent-sized town, one tiny town and two small ones, to serve west of here. 

On the model I also plan for light traffic, with only three or four trains per week (and them mostly seasonal agricultural and stock trains). There will be some interchange at Orin, with cuts of cars going into and out of CB&Q trains, and some in Casper, with individual cars being sorted destination in different directions than East on the C&NW.
