Hi guys,
 
Some of you may remember me from a few years ago. I'm the guy that did the computer generated model of about 60 miles of the R&N.
 
Well, i'm still at it. Only this time on a much smaller scale and a railroad within walking distance to my home.  
 
I'm recreating the Ironton Railroad as it was around 1940.  
Here are a couple early work-in-progress shots: (click for full size)
   
 
 
Once again, if anyone would like to help out, i'm currently trying to get as much info on the track layout as possible. I have a couple of maps, and the new book by Richard Bach (awesome by the way).
 
Also, if anyone is intersted in further supporting the online railroad sim and modeling community, there is a new simulation Kickstarter campaign underway right now: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/426668601/trainz-simulator-a-new-era-create-drive-operate-sh
(and its possible that the Ironton route will be a featured route in it)
 
Thanks!
~Roon
