The South Western & Pacific RR (SWP) is a modern-day fictitious small railroad that connects the BNSF and UP in West Texas. This is a rural area that generates tank car , timber, sulfur , food products and and LCL traffic of general merchandise. Both BNSF and UP have track rights and therefore send their trains across SWP tracks. Also, Amtrak sends two trains a day across the SWP tracks. A full operating session requires 4-5 operators and 2-3 hours.
