What Matt, Bill and Melgar have said also applies to me and my layout. So far, I bend the rules; put in or keep something on the layout that I like, but which has nothing to do with my theme (The Put); and what I do have on the layout resembling a feature of the Put is not a scale model,  but rather a caricature, of something related to The Put.

This is illustrated by the video below:

The engine pulling this short freight train is kinda like, but not exactly like, what might have run on The Put.

The HO buildings the background are very nice models but, to my knowledge, are not like any buildings along, or in the vicinity of, The Put right of way. Since I like these buildings a lot, I choose to keep them on my layout, at least for the time being.

However, it is very possible that my layout will continue to evolve in a way that more features of The Put will be added over time. Arnold

Ok, MIggy, here is a video kinda like what might have been seen on The Put:

There was a real light colored center cab diesel (Wellesville, etc.) on The Put that I have seen in booklets with photos of The Put locomotives. My model in the video is an MTH Premier PS3 44 ton New York, Ontario and Western center cab diesel. Also, the short mixed freight consist of a few freight cars in the above video would be typical of The Put.

The train station in my video kinda resembles the real current Yorktown Heights Station on The Put, shown in the photo below:

I would love to have an arched Yorktown sign on my station model, and for the station to be Tudor in style, like the one in the above photo. That could be a hunt at future train shows and a future project.

It's been fun for me to kinda recreate and resurrect The Put in my basement.

Some of you folks might similarly enjoy recreating and resurrecting your favorite railroad.
