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.

Spring Break and Happy Easter!

I know I have not posted a bunch over the last few months.  Been very busy with everything but looking forward to having having this week off coming up.  Hope to get a few things done on the layout and I will put a few posts on this blog.  Been trying to incorporate a video so that is coming too.  Had a great time at the Timonium Show last weekend and met a couple of blog followers.  I will also post on my great finds up at the show.  I also have been working on my presentation next month on my model railroad for my local James River NMRA division.  The meet is at Charlottesville, VA on May 8th.
So busy to say the least!  Take care!

    1. Thanks! That was an Athearn blue box that Norm Wolf did for me. It's got a bunch of old RR ties in it. One of the nicest looking cars on the layout.

  2. Hope you had a great easter! I've been away for a while, but your layout progress is looking great! Makes me ashamed of my lack of progress!
