This site is dedicated to my model railroad, the HO scale Virginia Midland Railroad. This layout comprises a 12X9 room with two levels. The upper level is complete and the lower level scenery has just begun.

I do a handful of train shows in the Virginia/Maryland region with Makin Tracks.
I also can help you find that freight car/locomotive or other hard to find item.

February update video

Newest video is out!  We will take a look at the new OSB plant on the lower level at Parker and a depot in the works for the same area.  I'll also take share my train show "finds" from the recent show at Timonium.


  1. Nice update Shannon, thanks for the shoutout.

    The MTH engines are solid, the decoder can be tough to program. I have 4 SD70ACe's with proto 3 sound, two are getting full Tsunami2 internals.


  2. Great update. That plant is going to look really impressive when complete. Kinda amazing how dramatic an industry can fit in such a small space! Also, amazing deal on that engine!
