    Maxwell, for me this layout has been my best one,even though it is as I said before a shelf type at only 26x65in. In fact it isn't even finished yet. I've had bigger layuots
    but I have more fun with this one. Of course the day is coming and I hope soon that I will have an extra bedroom,and then look out.

    I like Western roads as well as certain selected roads from other parts of the States like DL & W, NKP, Monon and even the Pennsy but when it comes to model trains I buy whatever takes my fancy in terms of paint scheme, design and size and have fun running it all together regardless of prototypical and historical accuracy!

    As it happens, if you carry out enough research you can usually find that there is a historical precedent for almost any situation you are thinking of reproducing in your modelling; for instance, NS locomotives are regularly seen on the Moffatt line.

    Alan,according to my source of information the D&M is now the Lakeshore Railway. At least what there is left of it.I was told that large portions were abandoned.

    I think when we were there, it went from Tawas City, up to Sault Ste. Marie, or certainly Northwards up the lake shore. Don't know how far south it went from there.

    Not surprised it has had some abandonments, not much source of traffic there.

    When we were there they had a smart looking Alco C424/5, but could not get close enough for a photo. It was in the yard at Tawas City, near the offices.

    Thanks, Catt!
