Description

The CSX Hanover Subdivision is approximately 11' x 21'. Layout height is 39-41". A Digitrax walkaround control system is used. About 50% of the scenery is complete.
The layout depicts portions of the modern day CSX Hanover Subdivision. It is a mix of prototype and freelance modeling, using modeler’s license in order to get certain areas represented. Areas included are Hagerstown, Gettysburg, Hanover, Porters Sideling, Spring Grove, Hampstead, and Emory Grove. Staging represents Cumberland (to the west) and Baltimore (to the east). There are interchanges with Maryland Midland at Emory Grove and YorkRail at Porters. Trains on the layout will include a manifest in each direction daily, as well as the Rock Runner to/from Bittinger, and yard work and branch line operations that switch out a large paper mill facility.

Update for 2017: Spring Grove has been completely redesigned and Porters Sideling has been reconfigured to allow better operations.

Parking is available in and along our driveway. Entry to the layout will be through the garage to the basement. Layout is handicap accessible with limitations. Driveway is sloped into the garage. Aisle width minimum is 26".
