Good evening all,

So i know i have had a few posts about possible railroad ideas, my ongooing ideas, etc. Currently my mind is on some sort of hybrid layout using select sections from the Model Railroader Project Layout of the Beer Line and something else. the something else has become the AB facility down in St. Louis (this will be a major part of the railway but not serve as its entire purpose if that makes sense.

I am posting here however to see if anyone can point me in the right direction for maps or even information about the Manufacturers railway?

Ken

This sounds like an interesting concept for a switching layout. Hope someone can help Ken.

Hmmm... I admit that even growing up in Missouri I had never thought of or heard of a beer train.



This page seems to have some useful info.

and yet more if you google 'manufacturers railway' 
including a caboose! (or whatever ?)
