Moving Forward

So I've decided, after some consultations with friends, I'm going to move forward with the Conrail C&P theme. While I think the Harrisburg line would be interesting, as I'm more focused on operations, the sheer volume to give that line justice is above what I can do from a resources perspective. Also, I just like seeing trains roll through mountains, Appalachians or any of the west coast chains. I've updated the site to have a "C&P History" page that's in the link at the top or can be done here. I've also updated the Layout Plan page with a conceptual laying out of LDEs. In the concept you'll notice that staging is now on the bottom level. Why I didn't think of this sooner, I don't know, but since I moved it down there, ideas for all the various themes I've done started flowing. I've also been reorganizing the basement. Right now, it would look like my workbench area will be on the wall adjacent to staging so I may set something up where the dispatcher would also be there and a "portlet" into the layout room for viewing the trains as they leave staging.

Welcome to the my Conrail Model Railroad site. I will document the research, design, construction and operations of my N-scale model railroad based on Conrail's Ft. Wayne Line in Ohio.
