No progress has been made on the layout as I'm waiting for re-staging to be complete.
In the mean time, I have continued to have dreams of a new Ottawa. This new Ottawa would consume the entire layout room though!
Continuing my post on notes of the ROCK v2.0 from the other day, here is a drawing I created.
The job working the Silica plant and L-O-F would be quite busy. Add a Burlington Northern local into the mix and it would get real interesting.
For the rest of the layout, I would run the tracks around the outside of the room modeling Utica and LaSalle. A local would be based out of LaSalle to service Belrose Silica and Philadelphia Quartz in Utica as well as Maze Lumber, Westclox and the Peru Power & Water plant. The local would travel to Ottawa yard, exchange cars and head back. I would run random RI freights during the session around the loop tracks.
