Realistic crossing makes way for heavy NS Intermodal @ Springfield show (Southern New England)

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Crossing signals by Custom Signals, www.customsignals.com This video shows the full sequence of the very realistic operating railroad crossing on the Southern New England model railroad, a group from Gardner, Mass., as it makes way for a high-priority Norfolk Southern Intermodal train. The train consists of a four-unit lashup of NS diesels with Dash 8-40C 8670 on the point, and a lengthy double-stack intermodal, as it passes over the fully-detailed and fully-operating grade crossing. The double-stack train, like the layout, looks fantastic. The crossing signals feature working gates, lights, and bells. They are also the most realistic-looking signals I’ve seen. This layout also includes operating track signals along the right-of-way. This modular layout is O-scale (2-rail modeling), or 1:48th scale. Recorded at the 2011 Railroad Hobby Show in Springfield, MA.

The MR project layout on display at Trainfest in Milwaukee. This nice, detailed yet simple N-scale layout will be described in Model Railroader Magazine beginning in Jan 2010.

We worked on an MR project layout in the mid-90s. Ours was Wisconsin Central in the Milwaukee area. This one is UP in the California/Arizona dessert.
