Track Plan
One industrial spur is served by the blue line. The spur has a switchback so it can serve two industries.
Sign Board
As it was with most small towns, Hermanville was built next to the railroad tracks because the railroad was the primary link to the rest of the country. As highways improved and the trucking industry expanded, many businesses found that a tractor/trailer rig could move their raw materials and finished goods faster and more cost effectively than rail service.
Description & History
The town of Hermanville has a couple of factories, a grain elevator, and several buildings along the town's main street. There is also a small train depot.
