This is a thread that will try to explain the building of the HO scale, Quanah Acme & Pacific (QA&P). The Prototype started at the Texas/Oklahoma border and went to Floydada TX where it interchanged with the ATSF the whole RR was a little more than 100 miles. Frisco crews brought the train into Quanah where QA&P crews took the train to Floydada. In it's infancy they had grandiose visions of building to El Paso TX, and Westward connections At Lubbock w ATSF and SP farther South. On this HO version of the QA&P, we will see trains and power from many different roads on ""run thru" trains to distant connections. It is still a DC operation, for me DCCing 300+ locomotives is just not feasible. At this time. Besides this works just fine, I invite folks to come by and bring their own locos to pull trains assemble at the main yard that has an operating hump yard. Only thing I ask is that they have KD Metal type couplers in gauge/clean wheels. I will try and get some pictures from my old laptop covering some of the construction For now here is a few pictures. I am trying to get some pictures from earlier construction but a PC crash years ago may have disappeared them for good.
