Hump Yard Question

Post by KSmitty » Sat May 05, 2012 6:35 pm

I saw this picture today --> http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showpi ... id=2712406 <-- and was wondering if anyone here could tell me what the 2 extra rails are for underneath the hump power?
Thanks!

I think the gauntlet track is there if one needed to bypass the scale at the hump.
