The MSRR serves eight industries. It has a five-track sorting yard and a two-track diesel locomotive servicing facility.
The MSRR is controlled by Digitrax wireless throttles, manually-controlled mainline trackside signal lights, and manually-thrown turnouts.  A car-card system is used to assemble trains and direct freight cars.
