In the middle photo with Ira explaining the structure, it looks like they settled on Digitrax for the operating system to me.Those are some nice looking curves and hand laid track. More photos from the op session earlier this month.Mike volunteered for this job which is quite intensive.
The Rochester Institute of Technology Model Railroad Club has done a very nice job on their layout's scenery as is witnessed by the first four photos on this page. The Rochester Area S-Gaugers have been invited to show our modular layout at the RIT Model Railroad Club's train shows several times now. The action cars and accessories on the layout are a big hit with our guests, as they can watch as a rocket is launched from a club-owned American Flyer rocket car (a great crowd pleaser), dump logs from an operating car into a log pond next to an operating sawmill.
Also at this show informational signs were placed around the layout describing S scale and our club for our guest's benefit. Click the links below to find out more about us, see pictures of our layouts, and visit our favorite sites. Wolfgang Faust entertains a guest while George Cole and Chuck Smith trouble shoot a yard module problem. A Lehigh Valley diesel locomotive followed by a New York Central locomotive pulling a mixed freight train of approximately 20 cars meet an American Flyer 4-8-4 Northern locomotive pulling a Northern Pacific passenger train on one of the layout's corner modules.
Lionel returned to production this beautiful model of American Flyer's Alco PA locomotives in Northern Pacific markings.
This pair of locomotives replaced the American Flyer northern class locomotive that was heading up this train earlier in the show. Also in attendance but not shown in pictures of this show were Jeff Faust and myself, Bill Johnson.Pictures were taken by Bill Johnson.
To see one of our former modular layout configurations, see our Batavia, NY show from November, 2003.

Message: It has been quite a few years since we have devoted a Photo Gallery to bridges and trestles. Message: I took a couple of shots tonight of the cheap, slightly altered plastic bridge I have placed over the Teal River.
Message: I have a soft spot for wooden railroad bridges, and I see some very nice ones above.


Message: Here's a couple shots of the famous Goat Canyon trestle in Carrizo Gorge, on the San Diego & Arizona Railroad. Message: Many of the 19th century railroad bridges in New Jersey are much lower and narrower than the one I posted above. Message: The North Dover crew stepping out onto Stanley Bridge as they cross the Salmon River on my layout. Message: A newly surfaced bridge over the South Thompson River in south-central British Columbia.
Message: The road in that photo of Bill Rose's HO layout is one of the best I've ever seen!
Message: Here is an HO logging area I'm working on where I made a rope foot bridge from flat toothpicks and carpet thread.
Message: Two years ago, wife and I went on a day excursion trailed behind the former CP Ry Royal Hudson 4-6-4. Message: I didn't get the whole thing in the frame, but you can see that there is a bridge in the scene for sure.
Message: Reaching the end of our journey across Canada on board "The Canadian" arriving Vancouver. Message: One day I'd like to have a completed layout, with things looking as good as you all have shown. Message: Train about to travel under a bridge on Brian Earl's N-scale layout here in Ottawa. Message: Well, I thought I would post to this thread because I haven't seen a bridge like the one just south of Moose Jaw Saskatchewan posted here. Message: A lot of times, railroads would put up a wooden trestle and then go back and fill this in. Message: Very interesting design for this bridge, Bruce (but seeing the mix of materials, you can wonder whether is was ever 'designed'). Message: Geez, we used to live in Western Monmouth County, and I don't remember hearing about this park. Message: Ray, Frederic & Dave, that mill, house, and associated buildings stayed in the same family from the mid 1700's well up into the 20th century. Message: VIA rail outbound from Ottawa with a destination of Toronto about to cross Smyth Road five minutes from my home.
Message: The Shore Line Trolley Museum's bridge over a tidal creek off the Farm River in Branford, CT.
Message: A very special locomotive which used to belong to my late friend, Howard Scodras, crosses a bridge on my layout. Don, after looking at your weathering techniques on those buildings, I'm convinced you have mastered one of the hardest tasks in model railroading, and that is weathering in such a way that it looks realistic from any distance.
Don, I really like the way you used the weeds around the rails, more in growth zones instead of sprawled evenly over the tracks. Hi PRR- No, but it would be super easy to mount a "grain of wheat" bulb in there from Miniatronics.
Now imagine building a helix ten feet above a concrete floor and determing how to work in a sprinkler system (yes they have these under and above the railroad).In the new section a huge engine terminal is nearing completion. They learned much during the installation and shared that with Digitrax -- to help other clubs.To give you more idea of how the older portion looks underneath I took this picture.
Here he took a rare break.Trenton station on the Trenton Northern an interurban with passenger and freight.
For this show we set up the modular layout with its yard modules and their background scenery.
The first one is from 1977, the second was taken a couple years later:One more shot, sometime in the late 70s or early 80s. Alot of my Layout is a work in progress, so I can only show bridges as they are at this stage.
They show the CNR line, now abandoned and currently used as a hiking trail, crossing the Rideau Canal at Chaffey's Lock, ON. The original structure was built in the early part of the 1900's by Henry Flagler, owner of the Florida East Coast Railway. 35 used to cross the river on its own lift bridge--In 2005 the old highway bridge was removed and replaced with a continuous high bridge. Better not have any "weed weasels" around, that one brakeman is gonna get written up for standing inside the gauge of the track!


Most newcomers to this hobby overdo it, so that when you stand off a bit, it looks like nobody's cleaned anything for fifty years. I am busy working on the next structure and will also have the cement industry done soon allowing for a whole new industry to photograph. About 15 years ago they tripled the building size with an addition that is slowly coming to life. The structure guru Ira is explaining some of the interior details to RDG-LNE and Kevin K.With a room this size huge sweeping curves are possible.
In the crew lounge they update a list of trains on a whiteboard and you 'bid' on your favorites.
The black and white was given to me when I was exploring the WP&YRR and have permission to use it but not for profit. You guessed it WP&YRR.Just picture yourself back in the gold rush days building this bridge.
A concrete culvert on (under) the CPR Havelock Subdivision near the intersection of 16th Avenue and York-Durham Line close to Markham, ON. The line was called the Key West Extension as it travelled through the Keys from Miami to Key West.
Or they underdo it, and it looks toylike.Ah, but that sweet "middle ground" is the challenge, isn't it? Here is an view of the new section looking towards the original area.By the next open house, they plan to have loops in place to run part of the new area. This requires going up and down stairs -- look for the dark green panels and the brown railings. It ran south from Smiths Falls through Harrowsmith, then on to Napanee, about 30 miles west of Kingston, where it joined the main CNR line running between Montreal and Toronto.
Just HOW do you find time for all of that?I know, less time at the computer and more time at the train board!
This is the home for the dispatchers and the work areas.They have painted all bare wood in green below and white above.
Most trains are scheduled against a real time clock.In the past they tried to run afternoon and evening sessions. When I think of the engineering that went into the WP&YRR to accommodate the gold rush,back in the day. Yes, they worked right through the winter to get line Railroad Line in place as fast as humanly possible. Flagler's company could not afford to repair the line and it was eventually transformed into US 1.
They since found that one four hour afternoon session is just right.RDG-LNE Drew waits for his train to exit a long stretch of hidden track after leaving Pittsbugh. As you can see the original railway bridge was used as the foundation for the roadway which ran atop the structure.
I sit in my shop thinking "this isn't enough" but when I get it down on the layout and under the lights, it looks great.
The B&W photo shows how they supported the track on the side of the mountain which has now been replaced by retaining wall anchored to the side of the mountain.The WP&YRR rises from Skagway to Carcross (Caribou Crossing) 4000 feet in 21 miles, boggles the mind.
A replacement bridge was constructed in the 1970's to replace the aging structure.If you remember the movie "True Lies", the next two photos might be familiar to you. It was used as a backdrop near the end of the movie as the terrorists drove Jamie Lee Curtis in the limo while being chased by "Arnold" in the Harrier Jump Jet. I have converted a golf club into an uncoupling tool (I opted to install the Kadee magnets only in the factory because of the look.
It's span is roughly 37,000 feet in length.Our final stop on the tour is a railway lift bridge in Downtown Miami (Harbour Area).
I guess this means they got to git out the big bridge kit and build an over-elaborate center span.
