Hi all, Here's the official thread of my Boston-themed railroad! Over the last year I have begun building a new railroad in HO scale. I've been collecting equipment appropriate for railroading at North Station and beyond. I have MBTA commuter rail / MBTA green line, Amtrak Downeaster, and Guilford freight equipment. Here are a few photos of my layout where North Station will go. All of the tracks viewed in these photos are staging tracks (8 wide). This entire section, about 25-30ft long, will become the lower level. The upper level will be detailed and only form a "U". The back corner will be a dead-end....North Station Boston (TD Banknorth Garden). Out of North Station 8 tracks will merge to 4 tracks, cross the Mystic river, pass by Boston Sand and Gravel, Boston Engine terminal, and head north double track to Haverhill MA where the line will terminate. The entire commuter rail operation will be controlled automatically by computer control. The railway on the lower level will remain a completely seperate line, but the scenary will blend them together. After the staging yards the lower level merges to double track detailed mainline and forms a complete oval. The upper level and lower level will merge for about 12 feet with shared scenary. The photos make it very difficult to describe my plan as they can only show one wall at a time.. I plan to take a shot from outside my garage door to view the entire layout at some point.
