    And those details lasted a lot later in that part of the world than other places.
    I remember being fascinated in the seventies and eighties with all the old gas station signs that still existed in West Virginia and Western Maryland that were long gone everywhere else.

    Thanks for the kind words. Going to be posting more screenshots and videos using BLWs B&O Equipment pack in the near future. That stuff looks really good on the route. Got to balance that with route building.

    Awesome Progress! Can't wait to be running trains over it with modern CSX equipment!

    ....and there's me depressed that half the hits for B&O in the library are actually Chessie stuff . Everyone runs what they want to run of course but how dragging stuff over these rails behind modern muscle loco's can be more interesting than the Era Chris has aimed this at is beyond me .

    I will be happy to see EMD SD70MAC lugging 100ton covered hoppers in front of a Newburg station with Ford Model A's in the parking lot. Not as interesting IMHO as steam era operations but cool nonetheless.

    short 3 minute video tour of the M&K Branch. It leaves from M&K Junction and heads northwest to Kingswood. Just the first few miles are captured in the B&O West End route

    Looking forward to this one.

    BTW discovered that https://kalmbachhobbystore.com/produ...e/vt-cs5140601 this small book from Kalmbach has an interesting article on the B&O West End with plenty of pictures and a decent map and gradient of the route.

    Thanks for that, Geoff. You can also get hard copies on the 'bay for a reasonable $.
    Cheers!
