The area consists of two industries which are reached through four #4 turnouts and a diamond crossing. One goal of this area was to not overdo the amount of trackwork or turnouts in the area - wanted it to feel "real". The area will be served by the Y-BA04 which also works the other two customers in Bay City.

Inspiration gathered from mills in Chelsea, MI, Frankenmuth, MI and Saginaw, TX.
The unload facility is located in the foreground where the product will travel over the tracks to the silos adjacent to the mill. The mill itself is a kitbash of Walthers, DPM, and PVC pipe.
