About the Layout

The layout is a approximation in HO scale of the Western Maryland in and about the Hagerstown, MD area in the 1970s.    Chessie colors were starting to encroach and Conrail was starting repaint their fleet.    The layout is my rendition of the WM as I experienced it as  young adult.   The Chessie System had taken firm control by then and the WM corporate identity was slowly being diminished before my eyes.

 

If you would like to visit it, please use the contact form below.  The layout is also listed in the NMRA layout directory and is open every September in conjunction with the Mainline Hobbies Fall Layout tour.
