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.

Tsunami alert

Got a chance to order a couple of Soundtraxx Tsunami decoders last week and just recently got them installed into the locomotives.  Both are Atlas locomotives and I have had plenty of experience with the Atlas ones.  They are also cheaper than the rest of the Tsunami decoders.  I found them at $74 each which is the best price I have seen.  Also if you have not experienced a Soundtraxx Tsunami, you just have too!  It seems that Soundtraxx is one of the few that offer sound samples on their website.  MRC sound decoders are affordable but where are the samples???

Check out the Tsunami samples:

The speaker is important and space is always an issue.  Railmaster Hobbies are the best speakers in the market.  They recently built a smaller speaker that is perfect for HO scale.  It's the  DS1436-8

Here is a link to their website:

Now the results:


RF&P GP40 #124 with a 645 turbo


VM C424 #292 with a Alco 251 V16


Stay COOL!!!
