Re: New Millington Trackage Update:
I was just looking at the Google Maps. What I see south of the diamond in Vassar is a passing siding and the "main" which is loaded at the time of the image with storage open hoppers. It doesn't look like, from this image, that there would have been room for multiple additional tracks south of the diamond. To the west of the diamond there is still an additional track next to the mainline and an open field next to that track. It is possible there was a stub yard here at one time although no evidence of it still exists.
It's funny how quickly nature can take open space back over though, so it could have been south of the diamond and the area has just overgrown.
North of the diamond there is a 4 track "yard" with what appear to be a 5th track still in place as well.
