    How about we post urls as to where we can see what we feel are great layouts, both 2 and 3 rail? I'm sure we've all stumbled upon links of ''merrit''.

    We have the A&O under a separate thread, so here's one I'd like to post---- http://norm.beesky.com/index.html

    Does anyone have a www. site for Stew Ramsey (?) in FL, who was mentioned in the A&O thread?

    Thanks for your considerations.....

    SOUTHERN COASTLINE RAILWAY SYSTEM

    04 May 2006

    Good afternoon train board members.

    I am still fairly new to the board, however not new to ¼ Scale Hi- Rail model railroading.

    My layout, known as The SOUTHERN COASTLINE RAILWAY SYSTEM (SCRS) is a fictional bridge line that ACL, SAL and SOU. trains have to cross over to and from where ever they are in route to.

    The SCRS has a union station that ACL, SAL and SOU passenger utilize for all their passenger trains. MTH built, Premier E-8 units pull all their passenger trains. .

    The C of G has also applied for trackage rights – primarily for their passenger trains to enter the union station. Their request will be approved as soon as their new E-8’s are mfg. by MTH.

    The SCRS is ¼ Scale Hi- Rail. The track is NOT TUBULAR SECTIONAL. It is flexible, three (3) rail (low profile) Gargraves Phantom Rail (black center rail). It comes in lengths of 36”. I also use Gargraves and Ross turnouts..

    All the rolling stock is quarter inch scale (I overlook the couplers and wheel flanges).

    The SCRS has a double track mainline, two long 3% grades, one wye with one loop using one leg of the wye, a through passing siding and some stub sidings. There is not a whole lot room for industrial sidings, however a lot of long freights move across the line. And as well long passenger trains.

    The Union Station tracks are too short to accommodate the entire train, thus have to be cut in two sections. A new larger Union Station is needed. The CEO has directed the real estate dept. to come to terms with the person who objects to having a new right of way crossing their territory. Perhaps some Wal-Mart gift certificates will help.

    The layout is located in upstate Mauldin, South Carolina. Anyone else live in the upstate?

    Interesting how he maintained the outside third rail method until the end.
