    Default My private road, should I ever build one.

    If I ever get tired of modelling the Soo Line, here's my private road.

    I was being subtle with having the "E" obscured by the door due to bad planning, but I like this!

    Then maybe you should have an interchange with another fictional road, the "SUBTLE & INCOMPLET"...

    Just came up with this one. Platteville, Boscobel & Janesville Railroad. Some of the commodities would be galena, grain, livestock, automobiles and parts, meat products, etc.

    There'd be a branch to Dubuque and an interchange with the E-W line between the Mississippi and Madison, WI at Boscobel. The units would be sort of a tan color and purple.

    Get it? The PB&J...the Peanut Butter and Jelly line!

    Shouldn't they be hauling Concord Grapes, legumes, wheat and other bread making supplies? Maybe small appliances too?

    I don't quite get the lead, auto parts and meat byproducts part.

    Oh... actual commodities that would be on the line. Lead mines, the old GM plant, Hormel, Dubuque Meats, etc.
