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.

Confectionary facility work continues...

Settled on the final name of the confectionary plant: Chespeake Valley Confectionary, Inc or CVC for short.  Here is the final layout and the walls all are secured together.  Now comes the tough part, the roof for the facility.  Lots of cutting and trial and error.  The color of the building will be close to the yellow already on it.  The mortar on the office turned out well.  Progress will continue this week.

The office end of the building.  The building will be on a base.

I extended the unloading shed a little so a hopper and a tank can both fill under the building.  I may extend it a little more.    

Overall view of the facility.  


  1. Like your mock-up. Some prototype inspiration if you need it. Similar to what your already thinking of. The link is to Sweeteners Plus which is a plant near me. Google Maps gives you some good trackside detail.


    1. Thanks for the comment Dale. I did check that site before your comment. It's got some great shots of the facility. I like how the railroad is also HQ'd right there beside it.
