Seaboard Coast Line scale house and gauntlet track seen at Trilby, Florida, mid 1970's
Seaboard Coast Line scale house and gauntlet track seen at Trilby, Florida, mid 1970's. If I remember correctly, there was a Fairbanks Moorse scale installed at this location to weigh railroad equipment. The track that bows outward closest to the freight cars is the by-pass track, while the straight track is the one that goes directly to the scale located near the scale house. In this photo the track is set up for the by-pass track operation.
