I am finally ready to start my On30 railroading project, which I'm most excited about. It's going to be a small-ish layout size (42" x 54") with its main source of power being a Bachmann outside frame 4-4-0 that I got on sale .
For now, I'm just still trying to determine the best layout for the space, as well as a definite theme. I'm going towards either logging or mining, but maybe even a backwoods freight line would be good.
The point of this post is to keep you updated on how the layout is going, as well if need to make a dialogue on what to go with for the railroad. If anyone has an initial suggestion on theme, that would be great!
The table itself is almost done. Nothing too fancy so I won't bore you with pictures of that endeavor.
However, I'd like to say I've finally figured a name for the railroad.
Alpine Flats Ralroad!
Got the theme to be around 1920's, in a fictional mountainous region (similar to the Rocky Mountains). Its primary freight will be from the coal mines, although normal freight and tourist passengers have been known to visit the railroad.
That's it for now, if a mod could change the title to "Alpine Flats Railroad project", that would be appreciated!
