Question by trainboy765: What is the difference between a BELT line and a TRUNK line?
I was flipping through some old Model Train magazines, and I came across an article about how this guy made a layout where there was an interchange between a City Belt Line and a Trunk Line.
I get that a Belt line connects the different railroads in the city to each other (Like the Belt Railway of Chicago, or the Indiana Harbor Belt) but I dont know what a TRUNK line really is (like the Grand Trunk Western). Can someone explain to me what one is? I would rather appreciate it. =]

Just sounds like the names they just used to identify which train ran which route.
