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.

Two new videos and a possible expansion?

I recently made a nifty little I-phone holder to video trains on the layout.  I finally put it to work the other night.
All my videos and photos are from my I-phone.  It does an excellent job:

I also had a heck of an idea at all places, work.  For some reason expansion has gone into my mind.  I have not done much with the On30 layout under my HO layout.  It runs well but doesn't have scenery.  I even have lights directly above it.  So if I put a small helix in the garage, I could access that level.  It's only 9 inches and could be done in 2-3 rotations.  It would be a small helix and frustrating to build.  I do like challenges and if it does get built, the line would represent the line to Orange or another branch line.  Stay tuned!
