In more modern times (yeah yeah, old boxcars...) a pair of EMD leasers and ElectoMotive's test car charge the Secondary. Although hard to make out, the Seconday track actually veers off to the right into a trailing point switch, which itself leads back into the holding yard, before making a sweeping curve across both mains. This arrangement allows crews to work the Secondary and Cementville Yard with only a minimum of violating the mainline, an a smoother turn than a series of crossovers

Cementville

Cementville is the first town and major industry trains hit after leaving Naptown. Double track begins here almost immediately after trains exit the tunnel at the end of the penninsula, and gaining speed to charge a long but fairly managable grade.  
 
 

The town with no name...

Towards the top of the hill, a branch line curves off around the aisle to a Steel Mill and Stone Quarry. Most popularly, this is referred to as the "Cementville Secondary", or as "Rockville", although whether it is another part of Cementville or another fairly closely located town has been a matter of some debate. Much of the area is modelled based on scenes from Crawfordsville, IN, and not the small Indiana town on the Ohio by the same name.

Taken from Hankinsville looking back on the Cementville Secondary. Twice through Layouts are fun, and neither level detracts from the other, instead building upon each.
