Thank you, Eric. Let me chew it over for awhile and I’ll let you know! It’s a really nice looking kit, but I’m not sure about the space it will take up in the scene.

That’s a beautiful part of the coach yard where the depot once was, I talked to Dwayne Fuering who said most of the bricks from the depot structure were taken by the NYC to be dumped by a bridge in Fremont.

Haha, Wheeling Tower is worthy of a layout of itself with all the operational potential. The interchanges, different signals and structures galore, make it a great microcosm of Ohio railroading.

Dwayne and I grew up together

His dad and my dad ran the 765 excursions in the 80’s

So excited when he and chris (beamer) brought the 759 home

That was literally a project his dad started Early in his career

We kept the car (executiverail.com) up there for a long time

Good people up that way

We have a car in Cleveland right now at the Midwest society - PRR Chippewa Creek - I will be swinging by to inspect a work session on June 20

Anyway
Sorry to wander

Back to Bellevue

Rock on!!!

Took advantage of the good weather yesterday to shoot some photos outside of my modules. I was really nerding out while taking these since I was only a few hundred feet from a former NKP (W&LE) mainline.
