Jim Hellwege's
Bangor & Aroostook
Designed around a U-shaped walk-around layout, Jim’s N scale layout covers a 12‘ by 8’ space in his basement.  The idea of the layout was for continuous running, and not specifically for operations, although an operations system could be incorporated with the numerous industries on the three folded dogbone loops on this 100% scenery-covered railroad.   Several scenery refinements and locomotive and rolling stock additions have occurred since the last visit 3 years ago.   The focus of the layout is the Bangor & Aroostook railroad, with the locomotive stock including all versions of the varied Bangor & Aroostook paint scheme (commercial and custom), and including early F3s and BL-2s to the more modern GP-9s and GP-38s.
