Description

The layout is based on the WMRY, PRR, CSS&SB, and other railroads real and fictional in rural and urban America. The layout is 30 by 60 foot. The control system is NCE DCC. The signaling system is CTC using CMRI. All track work is completed except for a double slip. All blocks are now detected by CMRI and a few signals are in place in the WMRY portion of the layout. Scenery is about 35% complete, mainly in the WMRY portion. The CTC is finished and working as a CTC or in a ABS mode. The WMRY portion has a few structures are in place and a 40-inch scratch built trestle is complete. The Baltimore portion of the layout is basically just bench work at this point. Most tunnel portals in that area are in place. A selective compressed 5-foot model of Penn Station Baltimore is 80% complete and a full size theater is 40% complete. Hundreds of structures will be needed, a good number of PRR signals and Catenary need to be built, as well as roads, streets, and a variety of urban scenery. So, the layout is under construction and due to the size will need a number of years to complete.
