Finally getting to posting my new trackplan...the room size is 18'x 20'approx. with "the closet" an additional 3'x 20'. The closet will be "the woods" and will contain a couple of loading spurs and a small coal tipple. The coal will flow down the mountain to Summersville yard and be burned down to coke. The sawmill is the largest structure on the layout. I'm debating whether or not to bring in a std. gauge B&O line to interchange at Summersville. If I do I'll have a couple of On30 engines to sell.

Tom,

I am debating the same thing about the interchange. I really like the idea of having a std gauge line next to the narrow guage for a side by side compairison, but not sure I have the room.


Sitting along side the orignal Central Pacific Rail Road.

Tom,

Good to see you back on the list! Great progress by the way.

I think you can add some of the interchange without taking up too much space. You don't need to show the whole interchange but could just include the "transfer" area or siding. This would allow for some std gauge cars to be on the layout for contrast and indicate that the outgoing traffic is going going "somewhere".

Please keep us updated with your progress and when your Oct. meet might be.

Cheers!
Brian

I think I can work in a std. gauge siding so I can ship finished lumber out on the B&O...maybe a twin hopper of coke as well. If I can find a reasonably priced GP 7 or 9 I'd paint it for B&O and power the trackage. It would add a lot of realism to the whole WVa concept.

I was thinking of interchanging with an ON3 RR but a proto 1/48 geep would be interesting to see. Think you can get that done beforr October?

Installed the switchback trackage and powered each section of flextrack. Dropped frog feeders and now have to decide on frog control. Nice to be back in some operation.
The #2 climax ran the first cut of logs down to the sawmill from Nettie station. Crew was visably excited as the dropped down the switchback.....not much to prevent a nasty fall!

Sorry about the drop... and hope damage was limited... I'm having nightmares still of my trains falling the 55 in to the concrete. Your train looks the part though. You are at the same fun stage as I am it seems! Enjoy!

If not a GP then an NW or SW or earlier switcher on the SG. Even an F3 would look good. The All Nation 4-6-0 was B&O inspired. Get a P:48 wheel conversion so it can run on Code 100 rail for the SG siding.

Got some work done today on the Gauley River Rwy. This is the top of the switchback which heads into the closet addition.




in this shot you see I've reused the screenwire and ground foam backdrop I had on the old layout. It's simply glued to the wall with hot glue.
