Welcome!

This site is dedicated to my model railroad, the HO scale Virginia Midland Railroad. This layout comprises a 10X9 room with two levels. The upper level is about 95% complete and the lower level scenery has just begun.

I do a handful of train shows in the Virginia/Maryland region and go by the name of Virginia Midland Shops.
I also can help you find that freight car/locomotive or other hard to find item.

Greenburg Show in Richmond this weekend SAT & SUN 10-4

Greenberg will have their annual train show this weekend at the Richmond Raceway
complex. It will be both Saturday and Sunday from 10-4 each day.

Last years show was a complete disaster with the Pre-Christmas Blizzard. They
still had the show, but was barely attended. I could not make it with 20+
inches in my backyard. I will be there selling my excess HO models this weekend
so stop by and say hello! Lots of good layouts including Richmond's own On30
James River module group.

See you this weekend!

Done scenery on the VM&VC layout

This past weekend I completed a corner of my layout with the finishing touches.  The scenery and ballast was done, but it was time to add figures, trees, and the like.  The above scene is the loading dock at Specialized Beverage.  They unload beer from Mexico and it is distributed in the area.
Here an overview of my completed corner area.  Specialized Beverage is the background and Mid-Atlantic Feeds is main complex in this picture.
The view down Industrial Drive.  Industrial Drive leads to Mid-Atlantic Feeds.

A website finally!

Been wanting to have a website for a few years now but never could I figure out how to do one.  Who has time to sit down and create one?  So, I checked out this, since few people I knew had one.  I'm not the smartest person when it comes to computer stuff and I'm no novice but I guess I will figure out this Blogger site.  Give me about a week and I should have site the way I want it.
