'Jackson, Michigan' modular scrapyard layout
« on: August 19, 2020, 10:34:35 PM »
Evening all. Some pictures so far of my current modular project. It's based on a branch line running from the railyard in Jackson, Michigan, which I've found to be well documented on Google maps and YouTube videos.

Most of the fun centres around a collosal scrapyard called Omnisource. I'm partway done on a piece representing the northernmost spur.

What a great idea for a layout!

I like your GP40-2.  Is it a Kato model?

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

For the made-up background to the railway and list of characters, please see here: https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38281.msg607991#msg607991

It's an Atlas. Nice slow runner.

An experiment with printable paper shipping containers plus some clutter for the lot at front left, which on the prototype is a truck and construction vehicle workshop

The finished module. I'm happy enough with it. Before I tackle the rest of the scrapyard (which is big, and I'm thinking of getting a cricut machine to do some of the necessary structures) I'm doing a little bit which is just a set points among greenery
