HIYA....

 

  This is the intersection I have mentioned in chat that I would like to model...

This is a shot of the Northshore,( CNS&M)) and would make a splended module of two traction lines intersecting for frieght transfer.

HIYA..

I think to model this spot in HO would make it about 10 or 12 feet long...
The thing that I would change though is string wire on the CNW line, so it would all be traction.
There was/is a spot in Mundaline Il called "round out" where the northshore, EJ&E, and Milwaukee Road all crossed within 2 or 300 yards.
If the northshore would have just lasted until I started tagging along with my dad watching trains..
