Description

The general theme is the Western Maryland in West Virginia. Lots of mountains, streams, logging and the start of some coal mining facilities and the big WM yard at Elkins. There is about 300 feet of main line and several yards. Scenery is about 60%, 100% in some areas and "in process" in others.

Most of the engines have sound, some from the factory and some I installed. There is a mix of steam, some early diesel and some modern diesel (just cause I like them but not exactly true to the time frame). A mix of  lots of freight and three passenger consists. Other features include a lumber mill with dump and pond, two engine facilities, one with coaling tower, water and sand, one a diesel engine house with fueling and sand facilities, and one, under construction,(Elkins) with a round table, 6 bay engine house and machine shop (finished +/-). Coaling, sand and water not finished at this yard yet.
