West Oakbay (Coast Line)
Just before reaching Oakbay Mole, you pass West Oakbay. This district is home to both the locomotive service of Oakbay, as well as the express area of the station. West Oakbay and Oakbay Mole go nested into each other. The workshops (shops) for locomotive maintenance are on the right side and the supply systems with diesel, bunker C oil, coal and sand (Fuel Service) are on the left side of the module. As a delicacy the unloading track in the fuel service area is heavy elevated, while the entire track system is 2 mm (real 44 cm) lowered relative to the main line.
Voordat Oakbay Mole bereikt wordt komt je langs West Oakbay. Deze module herbergt de Oakbay locomotief service, evenals het expres gebied van het station. West Oakbay en Oakbay Mole gaan geleidelijk in elkaar over. De locomotief onderhoudswerkplaatsen zijn aan de rechterkant van de West Oakbay module. De bevoorrading van diesel, zware stookolie, kolen en zand aan de linkerkant van de West Oakbay module. Terwijl in dit service-bevoorrading gebied het los ‘’track’’, sterk verhoogd is, is het volledige ‘’track’’ 2mm (44cm) relatief lager dan de ”main line’’.
