This is a behind-the-scenes view of Griffon's maintenance area.  When a train is here, the wide cars stretch all the way between the railings that are mounted about eight feet above the floor.  The weight of the train is borne on the small wheels situated on the edge of the cars.  These tiny wheels rest in the groove located just below the metal railings seen on both sides of this area.  The tires in the middle of the room are connected to electrical motors.  The tires move the train in and out of this area.
