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.

Catch up time...

Been working on some projects/custom cars for clients since I've been on vacation.  Lots of decals and lot of weathering.  Hope to have some layout progress to come right after I'm done with these projects I have had for a while.  Meanwhile, I'll leave you with a picture of a huge pile of decal backings!
Decal overload!

My work desk during this 13 car project.
Older train testing or back dating????

Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there!  This is a great hobby to share with your kids because it so very different from any of the many things they do all day long.  My kids always come in the layout room and check out what I'm doing on many occasions.  Take time to explain to them what your doing.  Because sooner or later they won't be interest anymore when they get into their teenage years.  I'm pretty sure my oldest Cameron is hooked because I catch him in the layout room more!
