I have been working on and off on my layout for a few years now with progress each year passing. I have a complete blue print (which I will post soon) of my fictitious layout which is modeled in the steam and first generation diesel era. The layout models an industrial and manufacturing branch line off of the main line. I will be focusing on some logging and milling operations plus a variety of other industries all to serve the towns and businesses of the branch line or to be exported through the main line.
A full operating schedule will be in place one day as this layout has been designed around the prototypical operation of a small branch line railroad. The room is approximately 11 x 11 foot square with a 9 foot staging room. I am finally posting some images of the layout and will continually update the progress.
The first batch of images were taken a few years ago during the first winter of construction. They include the 6 track staging yard and the first manufacturing town on the branch line.
More image to be posted soon.
