|This HO layout design is around the walls of an 18 X 10 1⁄2 foot room depicting a link between St. Lambert (west end staging) and Richmond (east end staging) Quebec. Two intermediate towns, West Pearl and Glen Swale are modeled, each having industries receiving and / or shipping carloads of products, as well as each supporting an interchange track.
Control is by Digitrax DCC and Eric uses ShipIt! to generate switch lists and other paperwork to support operations in the transition era.
Scenery is sufficient to complement the operations, but is not overwhelming.
