Lets begin, my main focus would be modern day BNSF railway/ Union Pacific operations, on Cajon Pass from Riverside, CA to Barstow, CA and then east on the BNSF Transcon to Kansas City. I'm planning to model atleast the Cajon sub, with BNSF & Union Pacific operations, and if I have the space, continue East from Barstow.
I'm also majorly interested in the operations of the Wisconsin Central, pre-CN take over, and it now as a CN sub-division, and Railroad operations in my hometown of Houghton/Hancock, MI. These railroads include (not entirely but the ones I'd model), Copper Range Railroad, Mineral Range Railroad, and the Soo Line (DSS&A at earlier times).
I've drawn up a track plan to model the Houghton water front yard in the mid 50's.
I recently found a 1:20.3 scale model of a Q&TL narrow gauge rock car, that was used in my home town, and would like to add that to my collection of train items.
I plan to add more as I go, in the way of pictures and pages describing my interests. Thanks for visiting!
