I can’t speak about the additional tracks in the coach yard and over by the roundhouse, but the tracks at the end of the concourse were added for military trains during WWII.  The added tracks can be seen on the train directors board in Tower A at what is now the Cincinnati Museum Center (https://www.cincymuseum.org/) .  The board can be seen in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKox1GO9isQ  The added tracks are on an extension at the bottom of the board.

 

In normal times, Tower A is open to the public, but I am not sure of it’s status during COVID.  More information on the history of Cincinnati Union Terminal can be found on the Cincinnati Railroad Club site (http://www.cincinnatirrclub.org/).

Were these proposed changes/additions implemented?
