Mike, How far north did the prototype extend to the North? Does your version end in Auburn or go north to the ore docks on Fair Haven Bay.

The reason I ask is that I personally know the superintendent of the HOn3 North Coast Railroad. It runs along Lake Ontario between Williamson, Sodus and Oswego.

He would consider trading trackage rights in the interest of helping the both railroads take tonnage from the New York Central.

Keep this up Mike, and you will end building the entire US Rail System. Go for it!

Can I add my personal business car for the train ride on this layout?

Definitely will be following along with the progress of this line as it expands into NY.

Thank you Bob, David, Jim, Frank and Bernd.

Bob, I think our visions are very similar these days.

David, the LV did indeed run up to Faif Haven via the P&NY and the Southern Central. We will have to work out a point to interchange.

Jim, I think itís business as usual: expand or die.

Frank, one nice feature is this is one of those company stores served by the railroad.

Bernd, except for a decadeís worth ov living here and there, Iíve spent my life in NYS and the Appalachians. This is like modeling home from the Finger Lakes to the mountains.

Your era is at the edge of the Erie's wide gauge, Mike. If you model the Waverly area, will you include the Erie wide gauge? I think there was an ore transfer facility in Waverly to transfer to the Erie from the LV.

edit: I just checked Robert Archer's Lehigh Valley book. There is a full page photo of the coal pocket, which is what I referred to above, on page 50.

Thank you, Ted!

Chuck, although that would be an impressive scene, I donít plan to model it. Waverly is a little west of the Soothern Central/P&NY connection. Also, the time and space required would not pay off in operation interest. I enjoy building large structures but after building a 150í coal shed and 200í car shop Iím done with large buildings for a while. I have a couple more photos of that transfer trestle so could do a credible job. I believe that about the time Iím modeling a third rail was laid on the Erie to Buffalo, eliminating need for transfer.
