The last of the track

The last of the track is down and all of the feeders are in place.  Tomorrow will be running the bus wires under the layout and testing.  Once everything runs, I will be able to put up the fascia and box in the area under the layout.
This is the view from the west end of the Brownville Jct. yard.  The track running off the edge is the CP interchange leg of the wye, which I chose not to model in order to keep the layout under 24" wide.
This is the east end of the yard, looking from the west.  The center track will host a small engine house and the old brick station where you used to be able to get on VIA rail.

The east end of the yard, as seen from the west. 

Heading out of Brownville Jct. headed west.  Here will be a few old potato houses and a small transformer manufacturer.

One of the short ends of the layout is home to a siding with a potato house and a grain elevator.

The bridge at the east end of the North Atkinson Paper mill.

The view into the mill complex after crossing the bridge.  I have a LOT of buildings half built for this area.

The west end of the mill viewed facing east.  It shows the mill's storage and sorting yard.  The siding on the left of the yard will be for pulpwood unloading.

The other short end of the layout houses a fairly large cement factory, a fuel and propane dealer, and the woodchip unloading siding from LaGrange.  Around the curve is the Brownville Jct. yard again.

If anyone has a couple Atlas GP38s in the Bangor & Aroostook red, black, and grey paint that they would be willing to sell, drop me a message at
