NOTE: THE FOLLOWING IS A WORK IN PROGRESS AND HAS NOT BEEN FINALIZED

The Victorville switching district is made up of four primary industrial areas; Victorville, Oro Grande, Thorn and Hesperia. There are three locals that support these four industrial areas that all operate out of Victorville (VVC) along with three industry switchers. The locals R-CAL0041, L-CAL0101 and L-CAL0102 are all operated by a BNSF Crew out of the BNSF Local Yard office in Victorville. Two industries operate their own industry switchers to handle switching with-in their own plants. CEMEX (CMX) operates two industry switchers: L-CMXCMX is used to haul rock between the quarry and unloader with-in the plant and Y-CMXCMX is used to switch out the coal and cement hoppers in the designated loading and unloading sidings with-in the plant. Riverside Cement Plant (RSV) uses one industry switcher to switch out the cement loader and coal unloader.
