View Full Version : Pictures for a layout
10-16-2011, 08:40 PM
Hello--new to the site and area. I am looking at doing a local freight yard or industrial layout in HO scale. I have moved to the North Shore of Boston area and am looking at local lines, Guilford, Pan Am, B&M and CSX. Where is there a good area to check out the local lines and their rolling stock? I am in the Salem, Peabody area not far from 95 and 495. Thanks---John

Take the short ride to Ayer,MA and check out the action there. The yard is off the main up a wye, but the MBTA station is right at the wye, so you will see several switching moves, and mainline trains right from the station.
You could also go up to Lawrence to Andover St crossing at the North end of Lawrence yard. There is less action there localwise and the area is a lot rougher.
