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.

Battlefield Yard loco track

Got away from the On30 layout this week and worked on some scenery on the Midland.  I tried out my static grass applicator that I built from a electric flyswatter.  It works good but I never had static grass in the height I wanted .  I got some 6 mm in yellow and green and combined them.  I did a couple of patches on scenery that needed touch up.  No pics of this!  I did finishing ballasting the loco track off of the yard.  I put in a crossing and a small shanty for the crews.  I will put several more details to bring this area to life.  This area will represent a crew changing area and a general locomotive maintenance facility.
Wanted to go with something besides ballast but more than likely ballast would have been used.

The crew shanty with some "era" cars.  I will fill this area with lots maintenance related stuff.

VM #281 waits for her next assignment.
