The traveling Railwire B60b Express Car visited the NCR. Let’s see what happened…

Conrail had these things called “ZTS Maps” that have proven to be wonderful resources for researchers and modelers. Many Conrail fans are already familiar with them, but I wanted to put together a quick explanation of what they were, how they worked, and how to read them.
I’m continuing to play with my backdrops. Here are a few more test photos.
On Feb 25th, 2017, I had an open house to show off the layout. Here are some pics and a wrap up.
I’m doing some testing with larger photo backdrops. I’m pretty happy with the way this is turning out.
