Bob Case's HO Scale Baltimore and Ohio

The layout models the Baltimore and Ohios West End. It portrays the area from Cumberland, Maryland to Grafton, West Virginia. This area has some of the steepest grades and sharpest curves of any mainline railroad. For over twenty years I have traveled to this region, taking pictures of the towns, bridges, and countryside. Often I have had to resort to walking or riding a mountain bike to examine and photograph the remote areas not accessible by any highway. Working from photos has helped me to include details in the layout that I might have forgotten or overlooked.

In an area 36 long and 20 wide, I have included as many of my favorite scenes as possible. The control system is a Digitrax Super Chief (DCC) and all locos have sound. We are in the process of setting up three control towers with CTC panels. Also being installed are B & O position light signals. I feel like Im living Field of Dreams because of the wonderful group that has shown up to help me make this model railroad dream come true.
