PHILADELPHIA DIVISION MEMBER
The rugged mountains of Maryland, with their emphasis on coal mining, have long captured his interest. The layout, set in 1950-1954 and earlier, is in two connecting rooms with a swing down bridge. Dimensions are 18 x 23 and 26 x 8. It is a point-to-point, around-the-walls configuration. Powered by Digitrax, the layout uses a car card system. It allows 3-5 operators to control 16 scheduled work orders. Twenty-two first generation WM diesels and several steam locos provide the motive power. Hidden staging and a reversing loop allow flexibility. Main line run is 116 feet.
