I'm still working on this project but I've switched the rail simulator that I've been working in, moving the project from Trainz to Railworks. There are to many issues with the Trainz program that won't be fixed anytime soon.
 
 In Railworks, I'm basically starting the project over. I'm currently looking into adding the proper digital elevations maps into the program.
 
 I'm also still looking for information for this project. I have a great Coxton Yard map that someone was kind enough to send me, I was wondering if anybody had a details map of the Sayre Yards?

The Snake Path Route building is underway in Railworks. Here is some winter action screenshots of Coxton Yard. Coxton Yard's track work is complete and I'm currently building in the Ransom/Falls area.

 

 
I don't have any Lehigh Valley rolling stock as of yet so I had to use PPR.

I'll post some more pictures later that shows more of the yard.
I do have two question I'm hoping some LV gurus can answer.
 
1. According to an on-line customer list of 69-72, Shawnee Paper Co. Listed 2 plants and one warehouse that was serviced by the LV. The warehouse was located somewhere in Coxton Yard. Does anybody know the exact location of the warehouse?
 
2. In an area between Ransom and Falls was a location called Wyoanna. According to old aerial photos the only thing in that area was a gravel pit. A little research tells me this was owned by a company called Wyoming Sand & Stone Co. Oddly enough this company doesn't show up as a on-line customer. Does anybody know when this company was in operation?

Here is another look at Coxton Yard. This yard was built from track diagrams from 1961. At this time only the track work is finished. Other buildings and bridges will be added later.
