This paper deals with the parameters which influenced the choice of a suitable site for a central yard. The definitions of the various components which form the complex and the civil parameters used to design these are provided. The reasons for constructing dedicated goods lines for access to the yard are outlined as are the technical aspects of these lines. Finally, the normal movements of trains through the yard are given.

Hierdie verhandeling handel oor die faktore wat die keuse van 'n geskikte perseel vir die sentrale terrein beïnvloed het. Die definisies van die verskillende komponente waardeur die kompleks gevorm word, en die siviele parameters wat gebruik is in die ontwerp daarvan, word verskaf. Die redes vir die bou van spoorlyne wat net goedere verkeer na die terrein hanteer, word omskryf, asook die tegniese aspekte van hierdie spoorlyne.
