    Steve's 300 ft. HO Scale main line layout is based on the New York Susquehanna & Western in 1949. The moderately large double deck layout represents portions of the line from Edgewater and Jersey City west to the interchange with the Lehigh & New England at Hainesburg Jct. All major interchanges are included, and the computerized freight forwarding system seeks to duplicate the actual traffic patterns for the period modeled. Many of the freight and passenger cars are detailed resin and plastic kits and the proportion is being adjusted to represent actual proportions as new information comes to light. All major track work is complete and scenery is well under way. Timetable & Train Order is used for train control, with phones for communication to the Dispatcher. Control is by Digitrax.

    I like the transition between decks, it looks like he uses a grade rather than a helix. If you have space for it, I like the idea of a scenic transition, rather than a hidden helix. I think we've seen increased attention to that design style recently; I can name a few other modern layouts I've seen on youtube that are built like that.
