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.

Latest video is out! Update on lower level trackage


  1. Nice update, good to see the layout space and how you get to the helix. Drop in is very functional, I would not reduce width either, as I think it would lead to some instability unless you add additional pieces under or on sides.

    1. Thanks Mike! The removable section is as you said very functional and I'm very happy with it. I added some bracing to it.
