It is rather amazing to think that Simpson's Sears did so much business back then that they had their own siding to handle railcars filled with merchandise.
No, you are right. The museum track was roughly parallel to the main line, kind of just below the Simpson's parking lot. There was a time I could have pinpointed the spot but I'm a little uncertain now. But I think they built the temporary switch off the Simpson's siding, not off the main line.
