Wendover is the second largest town on the sub-division. It has many local industries and is the beginning of the Jackson Grove Branch. A short spur line from Jackson Grove to the mining camp of Furnace Creek, acts as a staging area.
A resident switch crew is based at Wendover, and tasked with the duties of switching local industries, pulling and adding cuts of cars from local freights as they move up and down the main line. Two daily scheduled mixed trains, and two RDC passenger/mail trains operate from here to Jackson Grove and Furnace Creek. Jackson Grove has several local industries and two copper ore mines. These are switched by the Wendover switch crew as needed.
This is the west end of a helper district, and pusher engines and crews are assigned here to help heavy trains over the hill.
