Has anyone modeled Altoona PA?? I obviously cannot even attempt to do a compressed model of the PRR facilities. Right now here are some of my ideas:
1. Train service: A car-service building, diesel fueling/sanding scene, coaling tower, water tower, "yard"- really some unpowered O27 tracks leading into the car service building.
2. City- I plan to terrace it to give the effect of the hills above the tracks, and have a bunch of trackage below.
3. Backdrop- I will have to rely on backdrops, w/ building flats for the suggestion of the rest of the city.
The main track is done; the "Altoona/ Juniata" sections would be dropped about 5", and tracks there would be O27 and non-powered- used for storage. etc. BUT I could power them up and run locomotives and cars as a switching section about 5 feet in length.
Any comments or other ideas?? The track plan attached.
