His original plan is fine,

For his tiny railroad line…

One salt track

Pushed WAY BACK,

Takes mush less unloading time!

He wanted two tracks  to switch,

To fill a high-volume itch…

But only one

Looks better–more fun–

With less mechanical glitch.

IN FACT just one track allowing,

A mid-track conveyor housing…

Over a small pit

Between rails is it,

Unload another car without drowsing!

–Jonathan Caswell

The poem discusses changes in progress on his N scale train layout.  The above picture shows a cement unloading shed in New Hampshire, as one of the inspirations similar to what the author has in mind to model.
