Philadelphia, Marlton & Medford RR

Based on design from this thread, https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=23766.0 modified by DKS to ease curves and provide more staging.

Each 3’ x 4’ section is constructed of 1x3 lumber, covered by ½” plywood, 2 inch foam
Height is 50.5” I am using sheet cord for the roadbed in staging, atlas code 55 track. 3 of 4 3’ x 4’ sections are complete, still need legs for forth section.
I spent spring taking down old layout and salvaging materials. I was let go from my job in July, I start new job on Tuesday so construction can continue.





I will run current CSAO (CR/NS/CSX) equipment and maybe some PC.

PMM was operated as part of PRR Atlantic division until abandonment in 1931.
Thanks for looking.

Bob.

Can't wait to see more, I love this plan from DKS and all its variants.

Also your room is way to neat during the contruction phase, I assume that will be addressed :tommann:

Thank you.

Most construction work is done in the garage, two closets contain the mess.

Finally finished benchwork. As I was placing track plan in place, the track plan turned out 4 inches too long, I will just extend benchwork! I used cork sheet for the roadbed in staging.

I'm looking forward to how this layout progresses. Its nice to see how variants of the plan work for different people.

You have bench work and a really nice plan that says 'insert track here', that has to be less fail then my stack of possible track ideas, room that needs to be redone, and zero bench work....

It's an interesting prototype. Calls for a few of the Model Power (and even one or two B-mann) 4-4-0s.
I love it since it is such a local prototype.

Better late than never!
Hope Atlas gets the C55 track shipped so we can see more of your layout.
