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.

Outside rebuilds for the Virginia Midland Shops

The Virginia Midland Shops is known for some outside rebuilds for area short lines but this week received two locomotives from the Michigan Interstate.  These two SD35's will rebuilt like the VM's lone SD20-2 but will be called SD22ECO.  The work will start this spring and run into the summer months.  When completed, both locos will be painted into the blue and yellow scheme for the Michigan Interstate.

RF&P GP40 #124 brings the MCIS locomotives into Battlefield Yard for an exchange to the VM.

The Michigan Interstate locos will then go to the Virginia Midland Shops (which is not shown on the layout) and have their rebuilds done.
