CLINIC:  Modeling a Single Town Layout: Tuscaloosa Alabama
DAY:  Saturday TIME4:00-5:00p
ROOM:  Auditorium
DESCRIPTION:  In this presentation we will look at modeling a single town that has enough operational capacity to satisfy our needs for both mainline running and switching. The town of Tuscaloosa Alabama has a class-1 mainline, two yards, a shortline, and lots of interchange traffic in between the two. You can model this action-packed two miles of railroading in a limited space and still have the big-time railroad action you crave. We will look at the trains, industries, and operations of this unique town using hundreds of photos, charts, maps, and track plans. If you are considering building a layout or just want to see things from a new and different perspective don't miss this informative presentation!
