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.

1st annual Mid-Atlantic RPM meet in Stafford, VA

This past weekend I helped put on the first annual Mid-Atlantic RPM meet in Stafford, VA.  The meet has been planned for about 9 months and this past week, all our hard work paid off.  You could not ask for a better weekend and the location was at a marina with a view of the RF&P mainline crossing Aquia Creek.  We had top notch clinics from Bernie Kempinski, Butch Eyler & Ramon Rhodes to name a few.  The models were outstanding and the food was top notch.  The surveys of the meet were very positive and we hope to move to a bigger venue next year.  This was my first RPM meet attending and planning and I am looking forward to next year all ready.  Thanks to Norm Wolf, Daylene Wolf, Bob Sprague, Butch Eyler, Ida Wolf, & Mike Duggan for for their attention to detail & hard work putting this show on.

The view from the venue

Who is this guy?

One of my favorite models from the meet.  Brian Banna's Copper State Railway SD40-2

Mike Hart's Florida module.  He owns Hart of the South Models where he specializes in palm trees and native trees in the south. 

Butch Eyler's weathering clinic was a big hit.
