Great to see more progress on the layout as far as trackwork, scenery and operations are concerned, Rick. Love the use of helper service and looking at long unit trains of coal cars climbing the grade. Awesome job all around!

Wow Rick, looks great and I'm sure you're happy with the results thus far. Looking forward to seeing you bring it to life as you start futzing with the scenery and buildings.

Great to see the branch in service !! Helpers are fun to operate. Last session at my rr Steam Nut had to get helpers out of Tyrone to get up the Bald Eagle br. Someone in Altoona did not put sufficient power on the train !! --- Ken

I haven't been to the Harsco facilities since that night, and Rick has been rather quiet, but knowing Rick he is quietly futzing and bringing the new town of Linglestown to life, slowly but surely. Hopefully we can inspire him to post some updates. <hint, hint, hint>

Greetings ... I have been "surfing" this forum since seeing Rick's article in the OP SIG publication, July 2013. All of you have presented such great information and I want to say thanks. Hopefully, I will be able to contribute in the near future. Presently modeling the Wheeling and Lake Erie, circa 2007. This includes Wheeling-Pitt Steel ... hence my interest in this forum. Keep up the terrific work Rick and crew! Mucho thanks for letting me "peek" in!

Jim,

welcome. Really interested in seeing more your W&LE layout. Hope you start its own thread

This has been a great thread, the group of guys modeling out in NJ are amazing! Cant wait for photos of the next ops session.

Thanks guys, and welcome to the thread Jim.

As Mark alluded and posted earlier, there's finally been some appreciable progress made on the mythical Linglestown branch after three plus years of fiddling and fussing with track plans, engineering, and operational considerations. Unfortunately, it's also summer AND with an upcoming MER convention in October, not a lot of time to futz much. I finally installed the fascia the other day and am now contemplating ways and means for putting up a backdrop (vowing THIS time to work from the back to the front). Here's a few additional pics without a great deal of changes:

First a overall view:

And a small grade crossing/business section I'm futzing with:

More when there's something to report....

Looking good! Progress at any pace is just that... The factory really looks great!

Nice job Rick. Feeling the pressure for the convention? Maybe it is good it is not finished so people can see how things morph on the HTRR.
