Welcome!

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.

Great Scale Model Train Show next weekend and a crazy week!

Just wanted to remind everyone in the Mid-Atlantic area about the Great Scale Model Train Show this coming weekend June 17th & 18th in Timonium, MD (north of Baltimore) . Hours are 9-5 Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday.  This is the smaller of the 4 shows held in the smaller building instead of the Cow Palace.  We still pack about 300 tables in.  It's held at the Maryland State Fairgrounds.  All the info is right here:

On to the rest of the week.  Wow, this past week has been extremely busy.  Seven baseball games in 6 days is crazy, but that what we were faced with this past week.  Lots of rain outs will cause this and with 2 boys on separate teams, you get the hint.  Throw on top of it yard work and graduation and you have a complete week! I spent most of yesterday re-cooperating from the week.  I did get to run some trains last night, as I had not done this in a while. Even had my oldest son Cam (11)  running some trains with me.  He hadn't done this in a while!  Testing out trains running from staging and meeting at Parker.  Seems like the railroad is going to run as I planned out.  Still have a few feeders to install but in all, it ran well.  Next week looks like it is less busy, and it's the last week of work so there is some modeling railroading in my future!
