I (RailWanderer) made the three buildings and did all the scenery work for the area. Thanks for the compliment. Hopefully we have more scenes like this, also, that will be a bit as I need to finish the track & signals.

Fantastic work, RailWanderer. Those are beautiful models and you're doing a great job on the scenery. Thanks to everyone involved in this project!

There are only three of us working on the route as of this posting, Jon Peters,jr., DSGDDR (Darlan), and myself RailWanderer (John). Jon makes structural models & builds the route, Darlan does motive power, and I manage, build the route, and make object models. Its definitely a challenge.

Came across this - an absolute beauty. not 100% relevant, but NYC in 1928! Beautifully restored original Movietone News archive footage. Worth 13 mins of your life that is for sure *!lol!*

As you work your way closer to the Rochester area, I am good friends with some people that own the area that used to be known as Despatch Junction, by the Despatch shops. I have access to lots of old photos of the freight depot and the grade crossing that used to be there. I think I can track down photos of the Fairport area, just east of Despatch Junction as well. The east side of Rochester is a great place for a high-detail section.

I made this video and images to show some of the recent activity with building the route and the improvements on the motive power. In the video, I used a double header to show the motive power, one J3a, and one J3a Dreyfuss with many heavyweight passenger cars in tow. The route now, as it stands, is approximately 15 miles long existing just west of Utica and several miles east of Herkimer. This is enough distance to allow the Hudsons to stretch their legs, so to speak. Comments welcome as are suggestions. For the purpose of releasing the Hudsons this route should be enough to get started.

I was wandering around in the Utica yards the other day and came across this beauty just sitting there soaking up the rays

Does anyone know who this belongs to?
