basement layout. A fully sceniced HO scale basement layout. A large
modified folded dog bone, with a three track 150’mainline. Gentle large
radius curves. Incorporated into the layout is a large pull thru yard.
Called the Colorado & Maryland, featuring mostly Western Maryland,
B&O, CSX. Other railroads occasionally sighted are Conrail, NYC,
BN, DR&G and Southern/NS. Digitrax DCC controlled. Layout voted one
of the Best of the Prince William Model Railroad Club.
The layout takes up Ed's entire basement. The scenery is in and
it operates like a swiss watch. A recent addition to the layout
is sound. Ed feels this is an area that is the next
frontier. It adds so much to the feel and enjoyment of the
operation. Ed's dad has already added many sounds to his layout
in addition to the trains.
