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 update

Worked some over the weekend on the engine track at Battlefield yard.  This track is a engine/caboose "parking area" and where some minor maintenance can be done.  It has a small crew building here also.  I spruced up the area with weeds, grass and other items you typically would find at one of these places.  I also add some tan sand in the area so that the whole area does not like it's just ballast.

The sand adds a  better looking texture for the driven, worn areas.

There is still many thing s to add to the area but I believe I captured what I trying to convey.

I thought the open container door was a nice touch along with the 7up drink machine.  The bags of sand on the left are for the locos.
I'm also starting my busy season with work so post wont be as often.  So enjoy them when I do get the chance to post!

  1. Looks great Shannon, I need to check with my power desk ensuring they are keeping track of the horsepower hours being used on those SD's awaiting rebuild. They look great offline.
