New Haven passenger Station looks very much like the real thing.  I assume that's West Rock or East Rock, not a mountain? West Rock Judge's Cave is where the regicide judges Whalley and Goffe hung out for a while, having fled to the colonies, hiding from royal informers,  after the Restoration of Charles II.  Perhaps an O gauge panther chasing them would fit in?

Indeed - Roger used East Rock and also let me know that there will be a coaling tower that'll be added to layout - apparently the real coaling tower is still there - just East of East Rock Cool history you shared - being from New Mexico I wasn't aware of the West Rock Judge's Cave!

Last month, we had a visitor to our McGowan St. Studio here in Dallas, Tom Krens, who is working on a massive project in North Adams, MA: Extreme Model Railroad and Contemporary Architecture Museum and his comment as he saw the TW TrainWorx New Haven Station model was... "Ha, I just left from that station... looks just like it." Well... that was a most excellent testimonial to receive and bodes well for future collaboration

Have a Super Traintastic Day!

Dorcie,

First class!

Have you sorted out the signal system?

Lou N

Hi Lou! Yes - the 67 signals were removed while ballasting/landscaping going on so now the task is getting them plugged back in and signaling! It's a huge on taking!

That's some great work!

And that Mountain is a real Butte!  

BTW, is it possible though this "ex-CSX Executive" is a Steven Spielberg fan as well?

Finally, Since this layout is in a"Nutmeg state", what about the 1970's- 1980's "Pullmans on the Hill" that overlooked the NH mainline! Is the owner going to model that as well?
