Description

My HO scale Northern Central is planned as a 1600 sq ft layout set in the Lebanon Valley between Harrisburg and Reading Pennsylvania in summer 1953. The layout will be mostly single deck with the exception of an upper deck over about one third of the layout. The second deck will be a large integrated steel mill. The main yard at Harrisburg is 64' long and features east and west bound 5 track yards. Each yard has a dedicated A/D track. I'm also modeling a detailed engine service area for steam and diesel. I am a Baldwin locomotive fan so the bulk of my fleet is Baldwin. Steam still exists on the Northern Central but it is quickly being replaced by newer 4 and 6 axle Baldwin AS series road switchers.
