Last night I got my first invite to operate on Rick's HTRR railroad. It is a steel based PRR layout which is a theme I absolutely adore. Rick has one of the finest layouts on the east coast and is a prolific scratchbuilder, using paper for many of his models. To proove it he has a thread on RR-line that is over 80 pages and I believe it is in the top 10 on that forum of most read. I encourage all to take the time to go through all 80+ pages. Trust old massive here...it is worth it. Here are a few grab shots I took with my I phone.
What's a steel mill RR without a blast furnace. Here is Herr St. west.
Slag dump.. I ran at least two of these. There are a bunch of hot metal runs too. When that furnace taps, all hell breaks loose.
Here is the town of Lucknow. My first local was to drill this area.
