The upper right area is a Lumber mill/yard. A switcher could spend all day shuffling box cars from lumber stack to lumber stack filling orders.

BTW, though I do not model the 1970's, I do collect them:

Trim pieces are installed on the backdrop for The Hills Line. Since my design doesn't include a valance, I wanted a way to finish the backdrop edges and ...

I think I have now exhausted this particular project and the next "challenge" may well be a US prototype, modelled on a similar basis.

It takes about two hours to complete four separate switch tricks. This has been hands down the best model railroad I have ever built and so I offer an ...

I've been working on it at a slow pace for a couple years. I just recently finished tracklaying.

The Forum already does this.

This next one is an HO figure-8 with 8" radius curves in the space of 22" x 44". It was a test of absolute minimum radius using typical smaller unmodified ...

The plan is for a garage addition with train room in the future, where I will then build my dream.

I got my backdrop today. It was printed on PVC, it is UV resistant and it could even be used outdoors. But more importantly, it is looking quite good.
