A good source for the B&O Capitol Dome is Bowser. A brass one is available as part of thier Cal-Scale Line.

Let me know about your Ohio River sub modeling. My grandfather was an engineer running out of Brooklyn Jct for many years. In those days the sub was 100% steam.

Hey All. I'm working on my own freelance railroad .The Niagara Frontier Rail Corp. As of now my power and rolling stock has trackage rights on the Model RR club of Buffalo's HO  layout. The road is set in the mid 80's to present day, and will be modeled after the real Niagara branch in western NY. On the down side however most of the NFRC's locomotives were stolen in the break-in at the club last year , with the exception of  2 C-30-7s and my GP38-2 in the blue and white experimental scheme. Guess I'll slowly work on rebuilding the roster with better running power. Eventually I'll build my layout 22x50 Staging for Buffalo ,Niagara Falls & the Somersett plant. But that's years down the road. So in the mean time I'll probally build a small switching layout for home and continue to work on the "Black fleet" . Besides I still have a heck of a lot more work to do on the Buffalo Central . Have a good one.

One of my Jamestown, Westfield and North Western GP38's.  
I started with a Clinchfield 38 and removed all the lettering and numbers. Then I applied Rail Graphics Decals. Note the loco still needs weathering etc. The JWNW has four of these.

having finally moved into a house with a large, unfinished basement (with high ceilings) I can finally get to work on my layout.
 
I'm modelling the Victoria Railway (Canadian National Haliburton Sub) that ran from Lindsay, Ontario north to the little town of Haliburton. I'm modelling transition era, late 50s/early 60s.
 
My great grandparents came from one of the small communities along the line, and built a summer home near there that I still go to. Although the line was finally abandoned in the early 80s, the right-of-way has been turned into the Haliburton Rail-Trail.
 
More info about the line can be found at my website, http://www.geocities.com/victoria_railway
 
I'll be uploading some info about the progress of my plans!
 
Sean

Hey guys i model a free lance Milwaukee Road branch line that serves a small town. I interchange with the C&NW and THE TURTLE CREEK CENTRAL. I serve a grain silo, a lumber mill, a coal mine, a warehouse and possibly more industries. I have a four track yard, a couple of sidings and a abandoned SOO LINE branch that services the mine. Primary power right now is a detailed MLW GP-38-2 with a dummy CNW F unit.  
It makes for a intresting lash up on coal drags. I might get some pics on here tomorrow.

In additon to my NS engines, I'm made a model of the Chestnut Ridge Railway GP7 #11 seen here on the work bench. I started with an old spare GP7, chopped off the high nose, cut off the old radiator, added new nose and cab and other details. It has been repainted but lacks decals. I am also modeling the NDC Railroad RS3m #99. I'll try to get pics of it as work progresses...

I'll keep that in mind, thanks.  Would it be alright with your group if I could run some of my stuff on your layout?
 
Thanks.

Cool photos everyone!  I'll have to get some pics of my layout as it's being built.  I might have some this weekend, that's the next time I'll be working on it.  My brother and I are building it together, so it's at his place out of town.  We're modelling the N&W during the transition era.  He has 2 N&W Mountain steamers, an A-class, a Y-class and a J-class along with 2 Alco RS-11's.  So far we almost have all the track laid.
 
Pics to come soon!
