I just joined this forum and I wanted to introduce myself. I have been an active modeler for over 30 years. I currently model in HO but have also done N, HOn3, Sn3 and On30. My favorite RR's include the V&T, C&C, T&T, UP, B&O and WM. My current layout is a depicts Morgantown West Virginia on the B&O in the 1940's. The Western Maryland had trackage rights to Chiefton WV on this line. It is in a 10X20 room with an extention to Sabraton (on the old M&K RR). While still very selectively compressed it duplicates about 2 mile section of the railroad with a staging yard that represents Fairmont/Connellsville. It is a shelf layout set at about shoulder level. some photos can be seen at: http://www.mvrrc.org/ncwv_layouts/nevin.htm , along with some other nice layouts from the model railroad club that I belong to: the Mon Valley Model Railroad club.
I am to take some photos later today and I'll try to post some of them. It is nice to meet everyone. - Nevin
Here is another photo. The buildings behind the train are the wharf district warehouses. The buildings are now restaurants and law offices and the track is a railtrail. I am thinking about adding a turntable here as I have found old maps that suggest there used to be one. - Nevin
