Jeff’s been in touch with this wondferful narrative on his N scale Western Maryland themed layout:
“Enjoy the emails and posts about all the layouts around the world. Great for getting ideas for mine.
Took about two years but I think the N scale layout is complete. Are they ever finished? LOL
Since moving to Maryland in the late 80’s, I got to reading and really enjoyed the route of the Western Maryland Railroad. My N scale Western Maryland layout is based on them surviving all the NS and CSX merging’s and thriving.
I have pretty many different types of engines from steam to modern diesel. The majority I’ve painted and numbered to WM engines best possible. Switching from HO to N really puts a strain on the nerves and eyesight.
I started around the beginning of retirement a couple years ago.
Almost every building or scene has a story to tell that is near and dear to me. From Papa Frank’s Subs and Pizza (my first job) to the inflatable pig flying over the Western Maryland engine shops (Pink Floyd Animals is one of my favorites of all time), to the mobile home my grandparents had when I was growing up (Pop had a green VW).
Sandbox Crew Brewery, Marillion playing at the local club, a Tim Horton’s and even a Godzilla sighting.
Main industry is the Harley Davidson factory and dealership.
A big thanks to Jeff! What a layout – and it’s great to see a pic of the entire layout too. Stunning stuff.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
