A Normal, Regular, Train Fan




Above are some shots of my fictional, 2 car Amtrak train, the Northern Valley Star, based out of a fictional Wisconsin town, Northern Valley.
The switching layout does not resemble any location or era in particular, but VERY VERY LOOSELY resembles Lennox, SD in the 1980s.
There are also 2 guest appearances from my new WSOR sd40-2. In the last picture, you can see my newly laid static grass, which turned out prety darn nice!
Hope you all enjoy the photos!
