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.

Older CF7 Project: Finally some HO material!

Been slowly working on a CF7 and custom painting it into the RSS scheme.  So you ask, why in the world are you modeling that ugly yellow thing or what is RSS?  Well in my younger days I did a lot of rail fanning all over Virginia.  At a large paper plant in Suffolk, VA,  they had 2 of these yellow CF7's as the plant switchers.  These were awesome looking.  Of course my pics are in a photo album and not online.  But, I'll post a couple of pics:
RSSX CF7 # 7011 in 2007
RSSX #7011 in 1997 
RSSX #7009 CF7 2005

Well this is close but needs to numbered and weathered:
