3-D MODELLING IS COMING SOON ENOUGH!

This post has always been popular, too….


A good, if rather conventional, place to start with interurban layouts, is the conventional branch line.  Some electric railroads were no more than a branch line in total.  Others, like the Pacific Electric, had twigs off the branches off the trunk.  An interurban branchline has all the merits of a conventional one – small space, little stock needed, and what one builds can be built to a good standard.

I think it’s going to take several posts to explore just a few of the options!

Let’s start with a true branch line layout.  6 foot long in HO and short trains of two or three cars, and the occasional preserved interurban.  This is Andy Gautrey’s Wiley City on the Yakima Valley.  This little layout has a simple track plan, and some well observed modelling.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
