John Frederick’s Western Maryland RR
« on: September 13, 2020, 06:29:52 PM »
 John Frederick’s Western Maryland RR.  Ho scale, DC, 24x13 L shaped.  6months to build.  This RR is completely automated.  Press one button and the railroad comes alive.  Takes 40 minutes  to complete. The logging and freight run in a 25 sequence program.  On the main line there are 10 sequences that control the 2 fast freight hopper drags and a B&O Passenger train.  The railroad uses 9 Shay Model Die Cast kits.  Three trains are double headed and 3 are single Shays.  Uses an Industrial Logic Controller with Relays.  This is by far one of the best railroads that I have ever visited.  Must be seen to be believed.

Nicely done!  I like the switchback and the automated operation.  I assume there's a big staging loop behind the wall.
