We are in the continual process of building our new HO scale layout for club members. This layout has upper and lower mainlines with a total length of 837 feet of mainline track and a number of interesting industrial areas and interchanges. The layout is modeled on a fictional railroad that runs from Radio Island near Morehead City to Durham, NC. The name of the railroad is the Carolina Midland Railway and depicts rail operations in the in the 1970's and includes New Bern, our home town.
As of December, 2018, all major track work has been completed and trains are running. We have completed 75% of the structures for all the towns of our layout. We are in the process of installing scenery and, as any of you who have ever had a layout know, the work is never done. We have had a number of operating sessions and the layout is working quite well.
