That's pretty cool, thanks for sharing.

 
Welcome, there's more to come. I'm just finishing the the overhead wires around the carshop and powerhouse.

I don't know if these help at all:

Is it me, or would this make a great little O gauge operating car?  Milk delivery?  Mail delivery?

Yes, I know about both things. The first are Laurel Line Rolling stock made by Trainz creator CincySouthernRwy (Adam). He made them for me the first time I was working on this layout. At this moment I've been trying to get all that LL rolling stock back. I lost my backups of them! So far he hasn't read his emails!
 
 The second is the electric locomotive. Adam made them too. I have printed out that picture and it's hanging on a post it board along with many other pictures of the Laurel Line I keep around for insperation.

Make sure you include Luna Park ruins and Rocky Glen Park, which was still active, even in the later days.  Are you running the track out to Dunmore?  I never really understood where the terminus was.

The first phase of the layout will include Scranton Yard to South Scranton stop to Connell Juction. Also included will be the Laurel Juction area. I work in small sections so I don't have to research too many things at once.
 
 The second phase will be from Connell Juction to Rocky Glen. Then, Rocky Glen to the Avoca Viaduct and so on. One of the phases will be the rest of the Dunmore Branch.
 
 Lots of my information is coming from Penn Pilot arial maps from 1938-39.

The latest picture are down because I started working on another web site. Which is here...
The Laurel Line Project-http://home.comcast.net/~lwvrr/site/
 I'm also waiting on an updated version of Trainz before I get back to building.

Look familiar?
I started building my own model of the freight motors used by the LWVRR.

If you like the last model, you should like this one!

Here is the final combination car. I'll post again when these models are textured. I planning on making the complete fleet of Laurel Line units.

Here are some of the first screenshots of the Laurel Line layout.

 

 

 
My main goal is to lay the main track then build up the areas around that.

Once I took this screenshot, I just had to post it here...

The landscape should be familiar yes? This is Pittston city minus the buildings. There coming later on. I'm still waiting on models of the Ft Jenkins Bridge and the Oak St & Main St. RR Bridge. I'll say this much...Pittston his a hard city to model!

I came across a problem today. The question came up about the freight boxcabs the Laurel Line used. For modeling purpose, what was inside the boxcabs? Open space? Seats? I'm willing to take best guesses at this point. Does anybody have an idea?

From what I know, there were resistor banks located inside. Ed Miller told me that the reason you would see the crew (other than the engineer) standing outside in the most of the summertime photos, as it would get quite hot inside the cab from the heat given off of the resistors.

I got the first look at the LWV Boxcab. I made the original mesh and Jananton turned it into a working model.
