I'll post stuff on what we have as I get time. Matt modules are pretty much unavailable, so we need to redo them, both redesign and rebuild.

Spots that need or could be done:

Ivy - passing Siding
Mechums River - A single track crossing on a unique bridge
Waynesboro - important location with interchange with N&W. The station is available from me as a laser cut semi-kit. Who ever wants to do it gets the semi-kit for free. I built one for Matt but have no idea where it ended up.
Charlottesville - Main yard, a big project but needed.
Buffalo Gap - Former Matt module needs to be redone. Single track through narrow canyon
Panther Gap- Same as Buffalo Gap
Stauton- Major town, interchange with B&O,lots of brick structures.
Millboro - Old town with tunnel
Fordson - Massive Concrete palnt.
Valley Scenes - single track running through Shenandoah valley.

i'm interested in the Buffalo gap scene - hillside, ROW, creek, road, hillside - seems pretty straight-forward.

It's actually quite scenic and little known except to fishermen and hikers. The original module was a corner but it might be better as a straight.

We need to see how things line up, Then we can have a dork session o build th frames. Shall I sign you up for buffalo gap?

There is a possibility that Matt's former module still exists in storage somewhwere, but a new interpretation is fine.

Did Matt's modules get disposed of?

Sorry for not responding sooner. We don't have internet at the house yet. So, I'll peruse Bernie's blog tomorrow at the office. In the meantime, I'm definitely interested in participating and think a oNetrak module may be perfect for me now that I have moved in with my new wife's home.

So the previous post makes sense, I forgot to mention that I am limited to using my phone to surf the 'net for the time being when I'm out of the office.

I am not sure. Some club members helped clean out the garage and shed. Some of his modules did find new homes. The historic New River Gorge module went to a new home. The rest were in various states of disrepair. Buffalo Gap was in pretty good shape last I saw it. Waynesboro is probably not worth keeping. Not sure about the rest.
