    BCRR wide view TB.jpg

    The Bay Coast Railroad (reporting mark BCR) operates the former Eastern Shore Railroad line from Pocomoke City, Maryland, to Norfolk, Virginia. The Bay Coast Railroad interchanges with the Norfolk Southern Railway at both Norfolk, Virginia and Pocomoke City, Maryland.

    BCR has three distinct operating areas. The 64.1-mile (103.2 km) northern portion of its rail system connects with Norfolk Southern in Pocomoke City (north) and the system's car float in Cape Charles, Virginia. A car float, crossing 26 miles (42 km) of the Chesapeake Bay from Cape Charles to Norfolk, comprises the middle portion. The southern end of the system is a terminal track around Little Creek, Virginia, connecting with Norfolk Southern Railway, CSX Transportation, and the Norfolk and Portsmouth Belt Line Railroad

    BCR uses two tug boat-guided railroad car floats of 25 and 15 car capacity to link the 26-mile (42 km) water route across the Chesapeake Bay between Cape Charles and Norfolk — using the north and south terminals of the now defunct Little Creek-Cape Charles Ferry. This car float operation has been in continuous service since April 1885, and is one of only two remaining in the United States.

    Lovely model of the GE Ingersoll Rand boxcab, the original Diesel Electric locomotive.

    The others are fantastic also, but my heart is with the GE/IR.

    This is amazing! Your scenery is some of the best I have ever seen - I'd never guess it was Z scale!

    Niles Junction Hill TB.jpg

    For the Niles Canyon project, to match the typical vegetation with its cork oak trees on round hills is very important for us. This backdrop variations should illustrate our way forward.

    Niles Canyon TB.jpg

    A lot of effort went into the design of the cork oak trees and the corresponding sun-burned yellowish-brown grass.

    The center of the layout is the depot and the small yard of Sunol:

    Both, the Western Pacific as well as the Southern Pacific railroads did run through Niles Canyon.

    However, the WP is barely photo-documented on Z-tracks.......... ;-))

    - to be continued -

    Have a nice WE!

    The connection between Niles Junction to Sunol goes through the lower part of the Niles Canyon.
    Here are some shots of the Espee line on the right side of the Canyon:
