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.

Catch up post from last week and this past week

Last week, our local NMRA did some layout visits in the Richmond area instead of having an official meeting.  We visited 3 layouts, and all three were very good sized.

Dick Munnikhuysen:
Models the Western Maryland Moseby Sub in the 1960's
I believe this is Cumberland Md..  Always loved the WM.

This is Cumberland Yard. The layout goes to a long room through the door on the upper right.
Keith Prichard: Minneapolis and St Louis in the 1960's

My oldest son Cameron went along to see the layouts with me.

After another layout in Richmond, which I did not take pics, we stopped at Acca Yard in Richmond.  This is CSX's large yard in Richmond.

Some older power at the engine house

And of course some 4 axle power
Cameron working on the Virginia Central at Rappahannock aggregates.  He's really took a liking to model railroading in the last month.
