Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
I spent a little time every day this past week cleaning off my layout. To my surprise the motive power still ran pretty smooth. Everything needs a good cleaning, though.
I whipped up a basic plan of my layout. It's 11x4. I still have lots to figure out.
My concept is a small Maine railroad west of the Atlantic and east of New Hampshire.; a fictitious branch line of the Maine Central that runs up to the town of Patterson, Maine. Beyond the town on the right is an interchange and some staging off layout. In the upper left will be some town buildings.
On the lower left will be the town of Gimlin. The HO scale track will be hidden behind scenery. Eventually it will go though the wall into the next room where I have three old club modules my Dad acquired for me.
Between Patterson and Gimlin an HOn30 line will run based on the Maine two-foots.
I’m not sold on the interchange. And I’m wondering if I need more industry.
My operations concept is a train comes up from Portland, switches out some cars and the moves on. Current industries are: a freight house interchange with the two foot, a wood turnings shop an feed/agricultural company. I’m thinking I’ll have to put a siding in the upper right to service more industries.
