HO SCALE: Great Lakes & New England Ry

This 16-inch by 12-foot single station design was done for a member of the Micro/Small Model RR Layouts Facebook group. The layout depicts a fictional Northern Vermont location on the free-lanced Great Lakes & New England Railway. The town is to be set in the 1980s-1990s, and it had to include a small paper mill, a feed mill, a log transfer area and road salt unloading facility. I went with a small yard where pulpwood could be unloaded, and also included Walther's Medusa Cement Company as a stand-in for the salt unloading facility. The layout owner also wanted to include a connection to staging on the left end of the layout. While the paper mill is small, it will still require a good variety of traffic.
