NEW JERSEY DIVISION
The Sceniced & Undecided Ry is a 500 square foot N Scale layout representing the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada. Operations consist of BN, CP RAIL, CN, and BC Rail unit trains, plus AMTRAK and VIA passenger trains, running during the 1980s or GN, CP, and S&U steam running during the 1940s.
Spectacular scenery and animation are the hallmarks of the S&U, where operating cranes, coal mines, rotary car dumpers, factory assembly lines and fireworks are part of the many animated devices that can be seen along harbors, towns, cities, rivers and mountainous terrain. Digitrax DCC and conventional throttles control trains as they run through numerous tunnels and more than two dozen bridges and trestles.
The layout is 90% scenicked and has been featured in Great Model Railroads 1999, the May, 1980 issue of Model Railroader, the May/June, 2002 issue ofN Scale Railroading, and the Kalmbach Layout Video Tour #4. Featured in books: Realistic Animation, Lighting and Sound, and Introduction to North American N Scale.
