    Default CSX Hanover Subdivision 2.0

    Here is my layout I have begun building. Layout design was done by Robert Sprague, please check out his website at www.annapolisjunctionrr.com , with benchwork "influences" by Allen H's Little Rock Line . This layout is based on modern day operations along the CSX Hanover Subdivision located in south central PA and central MD. Benchwork is completed and I am beginning to transfer the plan to the bench, and get scenic dividers in place. Layout dimensions are roughly 11' x 21' .

    Your layout looks great. I'm working on a double deck shelf layout from Poorhouse Yard/Queen St. to Thomasville. When I have a bit more space, I plan to extend the shelf to Glatfelter paper mill in Spring Grove.

    I look forward to following your progress.

    Welcome aboard MU!
    Glad to see you posted here at NSN!

    I must say, everytime I see your track plan, or should I say benchwork, I get a little jealous.

    Anyone else know why?

    Well-done plan, and the paper mill at the end of the branch is a great idea. Shoot, that part of the layout alone will keep one operator busy for a couple hours!

    Of all the articles I edited while at MR, Bernie Kempinski's paper mill was one of my favorities.

    Welcome to the Site!

    that is an awesome layout and I'm sure that you are on top of everything but I am wondering about the upper staging track access. If the layout is against the wall will you be able to get to all that wonderful staging?
    Like I said, I'm sure you have thought of the above.
    Yours,

    The deepest reach is only 24 " over the whole layout. The area for the staging tracks is actually at zero height for the layout, as the area in front will be 2-2.5" higher. Staging is in a trench, if you want to call it that.

    Gettysburg Units by mu26aeh, on Flickr

    I finally got a clear coat on these two. I only did the decals two years ago. These will patrol the branch line between York/Spring Grove and Hanover. Just need some subtle weathering and I need to find the horns. Posted some links for proto shots below

    Started transferring trackplan to benchwork. Figured I'd start with the paper mill as I could get track down and run some switching jobs to check everything out.

    20150221_211002 by mu26aeh, on Flickr

    Apparently, plugging in my Zephyr caused a time warp when I started my switching duties. Here Gettysburg #105 and #107 are seen setting some empty boxcars into the enclosed loading dock, and then dropping off some coal loads at the power plant. Notice the heavy Western Maryland influence. :P

    Some where I thought you referenced Gatfelder's mill - if so you could have some ancient Maryland and Pennsylvania stuff...

    Worked a little more on the paper mill area. Pictures are from left to right. Buildings and backgrounds aren't permanent, just mocking up things for ideas.

    Super! Looks like things are laying out rather nice!
    Those Gettysburg units look very familiar in that setting?

    A couple of packages were on the porch from wm3798 when I got home today. After some minor repairs from the apparently rough trip, I situated the power plant and warehouse on the layout. Power plant is probably in its place, just have to get the coal pier installed.



    20150226_205123 by mu26aeh, on Flickr


    The warehouse may or may not stay here. Could move to where the spackle is, which will be on other side of scenic divider. One issue that will add to operational instances will be that the company has been around since the times of 40' boxcar, given the door spacing. With new 50' cars, only two of the doors can be utilized at any time.
