HO SCALE: West 28th Street Erie terminal on Manhattan

Back in February of 2018 I was asked to design a layout based on Baltimore & Ohio's West 26th Street terminal on Manhattan. After completing that track plan, I decided to tackle another similar design. I finally settled on Erie's West 28th Street terminal. The design was a lot more straight forward to duplicate than the B&O one, but of course some compromises had to be made. In the end, I was left with a good rendition of the West 28th Street terminal and the car float that supplies all in-coming track. This design packs a lot of switching in a small footprint.

For more information on this terminal, please see this link: West 28th Street Freight Station - Pier 67 & 68
