I always think it's top notch when a layout has it's own website. I want THE INDUSTRIAL LEAD to be top notch, so I created a website.
THE INDUSTRIAL LEAD
I've actually had my own website and domain name for about 15 years, but I haven't really updated it or used it in the last ten years. I deleted the entire old website and started fresh.
My hosting company allows you to install WordPress, a free blogging software platform. It's was
I've refined the plan to incorporate an Odom Lead Spur, a runaround (thanks Paul and Larry you've convinced me. It'd be nice to have a little extra operational opportunity) , an extra industry and moved PCC Logistics North. I've added more detail and labels to the plan.
I need to get some photo's of PCC Logistics and Franz Bakery.

I am designing a modern day HO industrial layout. The layout is inspired by my experiences railroading in Seattle. It will feature Seattle industries that I am familiar with and have worked at as a railroad engineer.
What I want.
Lots of SwitchingModern day equipment like:
70-20 Reefers because these things look awesome tagged up and weathered.Pressure Aide Hoppers. I see alot of these.Corn Syrup tank cars. Sweet."The Hole". Cargill's
I've been pondering the idea of modeling Railroad Avenue in Seattle. I think this area was an important byway between the major rail yards of Seattle and the Seattle waterfront. And the area is of great interest to me since I work the old NP Main at the north end of Stacy Yard on a regular basis.
The area I'm considering modeling would run from Railroad Way to the Seattle waterfront and include a pier or two. With selective compression to maximize landmarks.
Patrick, Lorenzo and I went for a ride on the Seattle's Link Light Rail last weekend. The boys had a blast as the train raced along its route.
We caught the train at Tukwila, where parking is free. For $5.00 round trip we rode the Link to Seattle's Westlake Center (the last stop). Kids under 5 are free.
