Time for a new lease on life and a new name

Whats in a name?

With the commencement of the demolition of the old D&H it was time to also bring this blog up to date with the new name for the railroad.

The old layout was based around Oneonta, therefore is was on the 2nd sub of the D&H.

The new layout will be based around Whitehall in the north of New York State.
Whitehall is the dividing point between the 3rd and 4th subdivisions of the D&H, however I like the Champlain division the most and the layout will feature key scenes from the 4th Sub on Lake Champlain.

Therefore the new layout will be called. D&H 4th Sub Champlain Division.

And it was so..

The blog has been updated and away we go.!

New Layout Design:
In terms of layout plan, here is the current plan.

I'm getting closer and closer to locking it in..

This is the main level with industry names.

This is the staging level.

As you can see things are well progressed..
Now for Atlas to start making N scale Code 55 turnouts and flex track!..
I have enough to build the main line and all the staging (I think) with the use of some ME code 55 in the staging sections also.
Time will tell.
Stay tuned..

  1. Sad to see that the 2nd Sub is now a 'fallen flag', but I'm eagerly anticipating operating on the 4th Sub.
