Millers

Prototype…

Previously known as Miller’s Switch, this locale had one small store and a rail spur that held ten railcars. Per the ICC Field Notes of December 31, 1927, there was also a milk platform located here.

Layout adaptation…

For this location, I am invoking modeler’s license and transplanting an industry from a previous layout: Shapiro Brothers Scrap Yard which is indeed served by the M-I, but in Festus, Missouri, on the Bonne Terre sub.

Typical traffic & shipments…

Shapiro’s primarily receives empty gondolas and releases full cars of shredded scrap metal.
