So I think that I came up with a final idea for a yard which required me to pick up a few more True-Track turnouts:

I'm currently utilizing two tracks for inbound cars and two track for outbound cars when needed.  I also decided that I need a better way to track the rotation of my freight cars and finally after a year opened up the box with the Micro Mark Car Routing System that's been sitting in the office:

If anything, it's adding a little more time to my nightly ops sessions as I exchange a card for each movement, and it kinda reminds of playing Strat-o-matic baseball way back in the days.  So I might be ready to lay down the foam, but that might be for another day as I just took advantage of a 5% discount to pick-up a few more box cars as I have quite a fe CR boxcars that I need to balance out with other roads  :)
