Mark is building a massive Lehigh Valley railroad and asked for help expanding it to a dual level extension into his crew lounge.  Bottom layer represents the Easton & Northern out of Easton, PA, and the upper layer represents the Montrose Branch.

Jay Eckhardt is a huge fan of Pelle Søeborg's modeling and wanted to replicate Pelle's track plan for his Daneville Sub as closely as possible.  Jay's space was deeper but not as wide as Pelle's, and had the door in a different place, so I came up with thi...

Morgan wanted a relatively simple, one-level railroad where he could mostly watch trains roll.  This provides staging for up to six trains behind low barriers; trains can leave one staging yard, traverse the main, and end up in the other staging yard, then back behind...

A special building will be built to house this monster, a grand tour of some of the iconic locations of North American railroading.  It was a trick to represent Horseshoe Curve, Cascade Tunnel, Keddie Wye, Tehachapi Loop, and the spiral tunnels of Kicking Horse Pass on...
