Here's the latest Youtube masterpiece.  I've rebranded the area formerly known as Kinzua to the new name of Westpine and the new company of Anderson & Middleton.  Anderson & Middleton was a forest products company on the coast of Washington where I grew up.  My dad worked for them for over 25 years and I worked for them as well during summers in my college years so it's been fun introducing a family element to the layout.  Hats off to my modeling buddy Greg Mccomas (HO Michigan Interstate) for the custom paint on the S-2.

Indeed.  That looks like a fun operation with the two interchanges, the logger, and all the switching.  I bet it keeps a newbie crew really busy.  And I can smell the lumber and chips from here.  8)

thanks - there always seems to be someone on the crew that just wants to go off and switch in a corner by himself.  But I've foiled that plan a few times by unexpectedly showing up with something needing to be turned on the wye (it's the only wye on the layout) - in one case a rotary snowplow move and in another a steam special.  That's not an easy thing to accommodate in the middle of the shift.

They don't in real life either, trust me.

There's a prototype for everything.
If you can't make it perfect, make it adjustable.
DCC is not plug-n-play.
