Modeling the 1950's Nickel Plate Road down on the Wheeling in and around Adena, Ohio
Looking good Chris! ... "love" those SD9's ... won't be long before you are operating!!
I love those SD-9s's too, woe be my wallet if anybody comes out with an accurate RSD-12.One day if I acquire enough of those six axles I can alternate between steam and diesel eras.I use the idea (excuse) it will save long term wear and tear on my steam engines :)
Good to see you are moving along nicely. Have you any more insight to your reach problem in this area with the mock up? Reach is a constant struggle in my planning.
At my height of 5'9" the through girder bridge at the back of the wye really pushes the limits of my reach. Standing on a step stool removes that issue for me. This area will have a open area to access seen at left for any major issues. Luckily the wye was mainly used as a junction and turning steam engines, not for switching moves to my knowledge. This will be the deepest area on the layout, otherwise 24" is the limit.
