Video: #87 The Kraft Switcher - Part 5

Check out this operations video by Mark Dance
This is the fifth and final part in the Kraft Switcher series. In this video, we complete our switching chores with the smaller industries around Castlegar and summarize "Lessons Learned" to help you plan the Kraft Switcher's work. You'll also meet #89 as it returns from the Cominco smelter on the Rossland sub with MT hoppers for the Phoenix chalcopyrite (copper ore) fields west of Grand Forks on the Boundary sub.

The Kraft Switcher is an operating challenge and these videos provide some hints on how to complete it in a three-hour ops session.
