Haha, that's phenomenal.  Talk about neat.  I guess that program will allow you to 'run' the trains once it's all in, and give you cab views and such?

If I do the job right, you could drive some freight runs or maybe just sit and take a trolley ride and watch the scenery go by.
 
 It really unlimited on how creative one could be with this program. The only limit is based on how powerful your computer is.

Work is still continuing on this project. I've opened up a facebook page that shows the progress and the current buildings and areas that are being worked on. The page is open for everyone. Anybody can post anything that has to do with the Laurel Line.

I'm glad someone is still out there.  
It seems that this thread is dying a slow death.

Howdy Laurel Line fans out there. After finding a lot of new information since I started the Laurel Line Project many years ago, I'm re-starting the project from scratch which will be named Laurel Line Project 2.0. Like before I'm doing some research before I lay down one peice of 3rd rail. I'm modeling the year of 1950 and I'm looking into all the known industries that the Laurel Line served at that time. I still seem to have some missing pieces to the puzzle. Below is the list of industries that will be added to the layout.
 
Scanton
LWV Powerhouse  (Shut down in 1951)
Ideal Confectionary Co.   (freight house lease)
Dennis Pappas Wholesale  (freight house lease)
A Nivert Company (scrap yard next to freight house)
Keystone Cinder Company (Unknown Location)
Fiegleman Waste Materials Co. (Unknown Location)
Kurtonick & Shaffer Scrap (Unknown Location)
Spruk's Brothers Lumber (Other side of Roaring Brook from LL Yard)
 
Minooka
Poloron Inc
Harris Hub, Bed & Spring
Trane Co.
General Electric
 
Rocky Glen
Jermyn Breaker  (Trying to find proper name of company or owners)
 
Pittston
Butler Breaker (Unknown if coal or culm was loaded at this time)
 
Hilldale
#14 Coal
 
Plains
Sincavage Lumber
 
Midvale
Prospect Breaker (Unknown if coal or culm was loaded at this time)
 
Wilkes-Barre
Lehigh Beef Co. (Wilkes-Barre Yard)
Swift Meats (Wilkes-Barre Yard)
Wilson & Sons Co. (LL WB Freight house)
Thomas C Thomas Co. (exact location unknown)
 
This is what I know of at this point. If anybody knows of any other industries or maps showing the locations or has location of the "unknowns" on the list above please let me know.

Apparently somebody is modelling Laurel Line. I saw this in a display case at the Hudson Model Railroad Society open house in Plains, PA. It was very crowded with lots of rugrats, I mean little angels, running about, so I didn't get a chance to ask any of the members about it. Sorry about the image quality, I only had my phone with me. It is obviously a model of a L&WV freight motor. It is unlettered and the side frame to one truck is missing but otherwise looks pretty good.
