Almost correct it was the 999 track, which only was located in the computer. As soon as the correct location for the car was identified the car was sent to that location.

I remember former SP employee Paul Koehler telling me that at Taylor Yard in LA there was a "99" track where you put cars with problems such as missing paperwork. He remembered a depressed-center flat with a huge crate on it, that was in that category. The yard foreman said, "Put in on the 99 track, but it won't be long. Someone will be looking for that load."
Like most railroads, SP numbered yard tracks.
