Great stuff, Chris. The CSX Mtn Sub/B&O West End is one of my favorite places - hardly any traffic since the building of Sand Patch, but that never mattered to me. Interesting that you chose to model the Cheat River grade looking downhill, which of course allows you to run the Kingwood Sub off into staging. I look forward to seeing more progress, especially at Rodemer/Grave Yard Curve and the final climb into Terra Alta - two of the coolest railfan spots on the hill. :)

Hi Chris,

Now that I've had a chance to fully absorb your plan, you might want to consider cutting back the backdrop separator at Grave Yard Curve a foot or two . The hill there is not very high to begin with (50' or so), and you've already nailed the curve there and at Rodemer nicely. :)

Cheers!

Chris,
Leaving aside planning for the moment, your collection of locomotives is excellent!

Reminds me a bit of the Maryland and Ohio in its size and scope.  John's got some catching up to on his scenery though...!

Love it.

Great locomotive consist in the video.  I think I photographed it at St. Dennis once.   :facepalm:

Beautiful layout!  Your scenes are framed so well and you've made to track look like it was built around the scenery instead of the scenery built around the track, great job!
