This DCC sound-equipped locomotive includes our Sound Value SoundTraxx® steam package that includes authentic prototypical chuff, short and long whistles, bell, air pump, steam release, and blower. I'm still trying to find a prototypical pike, one that is managable to build but interesting to operate.
Starting from Tempe Jct, follow the line south (clockwise) round the room until you arrive at West Chandler Industrial Park. My biggest concern with this pike is that basically there is only one out and back local to operate, which strikes me as a bit limiting in the amount of real estate that is available. See attached of a plan for the space I spoke of in a previous entry that showed the available space and dimensions.
This is a trackplan representing a part of a freelanced extension of the PRR from Wilkes-Barre PA to Schenectady NY. The PRR wanted - at least in my history writing - to gain more traffic from the New England area.
A part of this division - from East Branch by Delaware river to Arkville - was actually built by Delaware & Northern. Margaretville serves as a small classification yard for locals on the Oneonta branch and turns to Arkville where the chemical industry (fertilizer) and the NYC-interchange have the busiest spurs. There is also a branch to Pooncha (extending from the yard lead) where there is another grain elevator and a small factory for locks and safes.
The part I'll be building is Margaretville, Arkville and maybe Stamford on the Oneonta branch.
1 or 2 inbound freights from Schenectady and Wilkes-Barre, terminating in Margaretville in the morning and going back in the evening. The Pooncha-turn is represented by the Margaretville-switcher bringing the cars on the yard lead in the morning and heading away last thing on the op-session.
The Durango, Rico and Northern Railroad was conceived in the late 1800's as part of a network of rails and stagecoach lines designed to tie together the mountain ore towns between Durango and Rico and points North originally surveyed by Thomas Wigglesworth in 1881 for the Denver and Rio Grande, the route is generally believed to be the product of Otto Mears as part of the Rio Grande Southern.
The Denver and Rio Grande already had a existing line from Durango through Rockwood and on to Silverton.


The DR&N, all it's references and descriptions are based on research material from the Rio Grande Southern construction as well as the Denver and Rio Grande during the 1890's and later years. Precision motor, die-cast chassis, details and tender style per prototype, brass-machined flywheel, metal handrails and stanchions, LED headlight and tender backup light, die-cast marker lights, see-through underframe, metal wheels, and E-Z Mate® Mark II couplers.
Sheet measures 12 x 7", dimension shown is the size of an individual object in the pattern. Once you have added your track plan or design here, also go add a topic thread to the LD SIG Forum with the same name as your layout page: HO - Siskiyou Line - Joe Fugate and mention you've posted a new design to the wiki layout critique section. I've based this idea on a number of visits I've made to the actual location, plus refering to the 2002 UP track charts, and of course hours of peering at Google Earth and Bing Maps. I've tried a few ways to combine a piece of the mainline so that I can run haulers that interchange with the Industrial Lead, but have gotten stuck.
At the end of the 19th century, all bigger cities in the northeastern quadrant of USA had a connection to PRR apart from Boston.
In Margaretville there is a freight house, a team track and a spur to the agricultural co-op, that has a grain elevator and a warehouse that recieves food and produce and is sending cauliflower during the season. The rest is represented by half-hidden staging (Schenectady and Wilkes-Barre), a fiddle-yard (Oneonta) or on-layout-staging (the NYC interchange and the Pooncha-branch). I have the possibility to insert an 8' x 1' section between the staging and the fiddle yard, so it's possible to build Stamford on the Oneonta branch too. Would there be a classification yard in such a place and is it ok to include a freight house in this small town?
The line left Animas City, North Durango, ran severval miles up the Las Animas River Valley, then up the North fork of Hermosa Creek and down Scotch Creek just South of Rico.
The Durango, Rico and Northern would have ran from Rockwood to Rico via Hermosa Park, then the East fork of Hermosa Creek, then down Scotch Creek, to Scotch Creek Junction with the Rio Grande Southern.
During its construction, the DR&N had enough foresight to lay 50 pound rail, build heavier bridges and more adequate grading than was needed in 1891. Motor Adapter, Allows mounting of the switch machine on the benchwork, alongside of the turnout.


You'll get more traffic if you also post a direct link to your track plan wiki page here in your forum message. West Chandler has been flopped though, so the tank tracks are on the east side of the lead not the west. The Catskill division was completed in the first decade of the 20th century, while the tunnel-connection to Manhattan and Long Island was made, in a coordinated attempt to reach further northeast.
This part will be fairly straight forward I think, so I haven't put so much effort into the track arrangements here yet. I'm from Sweden with quite vague knowledge about North American railroading and geography, trying to pick up what I can from magazines etc.
From there, it followed the Delores River, through the Lost Canyon and over Cimas Pass and then back to Durango. It is this branch that is being recreated and modeled here on this web-site and in SN3 as it would have appeared in the years spanning 1940-1949 in Southwestern Colorado. Having the spurs face the right way should help operations be more prototypical – now all I have to do is find out how the prototype operates! In Schenectady yard facilities were shared with B&M, that also had interrest in the construction of the link to PRRs mainlines. Although the Rio Grande Southern did build from Durango to Ridgeway via the Delores River route surveyed by Wigglesworth, the Rico to Rockwood branch was never built and remained a stage line and later a logging road.
I’ve never seen anything moving, just the switchers slumbering over at McQueen and various freight cars lolling about in the sun. For my last track modification to the original 4 x 12 layout, I want to reconnect the West end of the yard back to the Main Line.
