HO SCALE: Mohawk & Adirondack RR (End of Branch Line Mill Town)

This 12-inch by 84-inch HO-scale layout was done for a client's freelanced Mohawk & Adirondack RR. The owner wanted a layout based on a branch line terminal located in New York State circa 1943 or 1944. He wanted the mini to include a creamery, a produce warehouse, a textile mill, a small freight house, and a team track. I was able to include on that in the design, and also threw in a small passenger depot. With so many industries, there had to be a lot of track which pretty much dominates the shelf. However, it is a workable design for someone that likes some intense switching in a tight space.
