  1. Awesome track plan, now if I can adapt this to fit the space in my basement in HO, I can die happy!! Cant wait til February!

  2. Riding by the gravel unloading facility in Finksburg, MD, it's good to see that modern railroading is still local, friendly and current for us who love trains. The diesel horns that echo in the night at Reisterstown and on up the old WM mainline gives hope that trains will always be around so that we can try to capture the excitement we see in this trackplan. Great work!

  3. This is a very well done track plan and I know some of the WM modeler's I've shown it to are very interested in its design.

  4. Love the drive from Thurmont up Owens creek toward Sabillaville. The creek cascades down through the narrow space with the rocks & trees all around & the railroad crossing back & forth over both the creek & the narrow road. It would be fun to model this & then show how the ground opens up with wide pastures as you reach the higher ground & the train track makes a wide sweeping turn, still climbing toward Sabillaville.
