Thanks, Allen. It's not that hard, preparation is the key. DJ.
As always some fantastic modeling shown in here!
Been a few weeks since i had anything new even vaguely worth posting here. This week I finally got the lower staging area put in place and the tracks put in to service it. Ultimately there will be 4 staging tracks on the two shelves on this wall. Each will hold a good sized train....

Recently completed mocked up portions of the Philadelphia & Scranton:
1st foto: North end of Reading yards, junction of passenger & freight lines
2nd foto: Schuykill Haven left side, Port Clinton right side
3rd foto: Looking toward Tower 60 area, Scranton(box in distance). Taylor/Dunsmore and CNJ Backtrack areas in the foreground.
4th foto: Scranton yards and passenger station platform area.
These are intended to give me a feel for what the actual track arrangements will be like, full HO scale. Also allow me to see how reach and clearances are.
