Western Maryland Railway
July 30, 2006
Dan’s point-to-point layout is based
on the Western Maryland Railway in the coalfields of West Virginia in
1952. The railroad features the operation of multiple "Wild Mary"
2-8-0's and 2-10-0's fighting up Black Fork grade as well as an
interchange with Mower Lumber Co. shays. Some scenery is in place, but
the forests have yet to grow back after harvesting in the early part of
the 20th century. While most of the layout is standard O gauge, parts
have been converted to Proto:48, the beginning of a long process.
