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.

Valley Forge RPM meet recap

A recap on the Valley Forge RPM meet is finally here.  I'm on spring break this week but here it is Tuesday night and I'm been going nonstop since the weekend.  I hope to get some work done in the layout room and have gotten a few things accomplished.  Want to do this write up last week but did not have the time.  So here we are.  The Valley Forge meet is a every 2 year meet.  They do the odd years near Pittsburgh.  This one was near Philly.  Good drive up on Saturday morning and did not realize it was $16 in tolls to get up there.  I'm sorry, but a $8 toll is ridiculous!  It was somewhere up there by the Susquehanna River on I-95.  My presentation went well and was about 30-35 people in attendance.   Lots of top notch and who's who presenters like Lance Mindheim, Mike Rose and Ramon Rhodes.  Great location and hotel.  Well worth the trip.  I recommend attending a RPM meet.  It will definitely get the juices flowing.  I'm helping out with one coming up in September near Baltimore.
