HO SCALE: Glen Oak (End of Line Station)

I started this layout for a Facebook friend of mine back in October of 2018, but I didn't get around to putting the finishing touches on it until February 2019. While the layout has a relatively small footprint, it packs a lot of punch-both operationally and visually-in the small space.

It represents one of my favourite subject: the end of line station, and a busy one at that. As you can see from the 3D screen captures there is a very nice visual charm to the location, and it offers enough car spots to give a challenging op-session. It would be best if you could get enough attached staging that at least two local trains are staged. And if you can squeeze in a third staging track, I would opt for some limited passenger service using an RDC.
