Tom Orlando's Eastern Pacific RR
Tom had no particular prototype in mind for his "retirement railroad," (thus the tongue-in-cheek name) but wanted a double track-main and the ability to see trains "cross over one another" along with logging and coal industries. I designed a SP-flavored pike with a double-track mainline upon which trains use a "high line" and "low line" to conquer a grade, resulting in said crossing over.
Brian Becker's Buffalo Terminal RR
Brian is modeling CSX in the Buffalo, NY area. We were able to include some of the complex routings over the bridge at CP "DRAW" and a representation of the Niagara Branch along with a lot of opportunities for yard and industrial switching. The railroad also includes opportunities to expand into an adjacent room at the right.
